Enea has announced the joining of the Microsoft Azure Operator Nexus Ready program. The introduction of Enea’s Telecom product portfolio will further enhance mobile operators’ ability to unlock the potential of 5G and provide more choice in pre-validated solutions to ensure a faster time to deployment for solutions.
