Key enablers

Cloud infrastructure
The underlying cloud infrastructure needs to evolve in multiple dimensions. First, it must support a cost-efficient evolution from today’s virtual core networks to manage a cloud native network. Secondly, it must support a wide range of deployment options: central, edge and deep edge deployments are needed to enable low-latency and edge computing use cases. Cloud infrastructure should also be system verified with network functions and the management and orchestration layer for optimal TCO.
Network automation
Everything 5G, especially 5G Core networks, must be automated. Automation is required to handle the magnitude of tailor-made services and network slices that will be introduced with 5G. To manually or semi-automate all parts of the network is not feasible if SLAs are to be sustained. To keep up with latest software releases, it’s imperative to have a CI/CD mindset. The faster the latest network capabilities can be introduced, the faster new differentiating services can be rolled out and monetized.

Explore our solutions

5G Core

Get to the core of 5G – a cloud native dual-mode 5G Core that combines EPC and 5GC network functions into a common cloud native platform for efficient TCO and smooth migration to 5G.

Network automation

Leverage automation to improve operational efficiency, reduce time to market for new services, and lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Learn more about the benefits of automation and the solutions you need to unlock them below.

Cloud Infrastructure

How can service providers best build an open telco cloud infrastructure for 5G to introduce services quickly with low risk? And how can infrastructure be evolved to support cloud native applications and edge computing for new business opportunities?

Cloud native

Cloud native for telecom applications is happening now. In the next years, telecom applications will be cloud natively designed to increase efficiency and utilization of the cloud infrastructure.

CI/CD

CI/CD is the cornerstone of true digital transformation. With CI/CD, delivery processes for new software versions and services can be automated – dramatically improving time-to-market and service agility.

5G Voice

Voice is the king of communication and in a 5G world it will be more important than ever, through various types of use cases. To enable service provider voice calls on 5G smartphones, the network infrastructure used for VoLTE today will also be used to enable 5G voice calls.
