Building for the future in today's networks
As a firm believer of the concept of “One Core” for all accesses and services, the challenge is rather about the path to get there. Have you set the path for your 5G implementation that balances investments, revenue streams and competitiveness while minimizing risk? If not, read on to not miss the “Building for the future in today’s networks” webinar at Mobile World Live.
Evolution to 5G core made easy
The trend is clear. Service providers are accelerating towards 5G in search for efficiencies and customer experience. 4G and 5G are going to be used in parallel for a long time forward and the Core network must enable faster deployments and considerably less costly connectivity.
The first services now launched for 5G consumer services in North America, are FWA– e.g. connecting households with fast broadband without fiber to the home. From a core network side, this means a massive increase in traffic, often 100 times more. How to efficiently secure the network performance for existing business and services while introducing new ones like FWA?
This is a good example where Control and User plan separation (CUPS) in the core network is enabling the required flexibility in capacity scaling and topology. With a distributed cloud approach resources are allocated to where they are most appropriate to deliver the required level of service in the most cost-efficient way.
This topic and many more covering both Radio and Core network evolution and spectrum strategy will be discussed by Anders Rosengren, Head of Architecture & Technology in Business Area Digital Services, and Jawad Manssour, Head of Networks Portfolio Management, Business Area Networks, Ericsson in the "5G deployment considerations" webinar.
