HCLTech Nucleus blueprint

Key highlights


HCLTech’s Nucleus leverages a design-driven and industry vertical agnostic approach, addressing innovative use cases and industry-specific campus networking requirements.

Flexible commercial model

Enterprises enjoy a combination of flexible pricing model such as fixed-price, pay-as-you-go, subscription-based and hybrid, that fits their need and transform their economics.

NetOps integration and zero-trust security

Our campus networking framework utilizes AIOps, NetOps, and consulting frameworks for cognitive automation and SASE-based security to mitigate endpoint security vulnerabilities.

Track and trace with near real-time analytics

Nucleus consumes location data from access points and beacons to perform real-time location monitoring. The framework offers real-time analytics (turning data into actionable insights) for better decision making.

Digital tech convergence

Leverages IT/OT convergence for deploying Industry 4.0 use cases. It also supports the 5G + Wi-Fi6 convergence, helping enterprises with indoor private wireless (offices, school) and outdoor (stadiums, arena) capabilities.
