Prepare your core network
Core Network preparation starts here
Start the core network transformation journey with Ericsson to be prepared for 5G by meeting diverse upcoming new services, business models, and use cases, including Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
The case for change
A core network ready for your 5G and IoT business
With network slicing, cloud native design principles, advanced automation and resource orchestration, your core network will be in good shape for 5G and IoT. Start to deploy already today.
Operators can start addressing the interest from industries already now, testing new business models and create additional revenue streams. 5G Core technologies network slicing and distributed cloud enable IoT use cases already in existing networks. By experimenting and rethinking what role to take, operators will be prepared to capture the full business potential of 5G. In our new report, we have turned our insights into a comprehensive guide for operators on how to start their 5G-IoT business.
There's no doubt the evolution of 5G is gaining momentum. But migrating to 5G is a multi-faceted process, with many aspects to consider along the way. In this blog post, Jesper Häglund shares his recommendations for operators who are looking to evolve from their current 4G Core network to 5G.
Network slicing needs to add value, so it's important that the process lowers time to market, time to customer, and operational costs, as well as tailoring service characteristics such as delay or capacity, or meeting isolation requirements. Okay we all agree to that, but how is this done in practice and how many slices are needed? In this blog post, Maria Düsing takes a closer look at the number of variants of network slice types.
