We are evolving our Cloud Core portfolio with seven new products that deliver a dual-mode 5G Cloud Core solution...but what does dual-mode core means? And why do service providers need it for their networks? It's simple: eventually they will need to launch new services based on 5G NR stand-alone (SA) technology at some point in the near future, but they'll still need to care for their existing 4G customer base.
A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of representing Ericsson in the Open Networking Summit (ONS), North America as a Diamond Sponsor. During the 3-day event, Ericsson captured a great portion of the agenda from delivering a keynote with a demo to setting up a booth for additional demos and conversations that spanned major technology areas essential for 5G. Topics included: cloud native, automation, orchestration, dual-mode 5G cloud core, network slicing, security, and AI.
Have we overestimated how much service providers know and are prepared to adopt network slicing technology? After meeting dozens of customers during MWC 2019, the most frequently asked questions I got from our customers were: what is network slicing? Why is it needed? How does it get better with 5G, and how can I build end-to-end slices? If you also have similar questions, please continue reading this post.
