Innovation game for 5G Core development

Innovate and empower with 5G Core

Enabling differentiated connectivity offerings

Welcome to the innovation game

The journey doesn’t end once you have deployed and scaled your cloud-native 5G Core. In fact, that is only the beginning.

So, what comes next? New and enhanced capabilities in 5G Core mean that as a communications service provider, you can now create and offer premium services for your customers – especially when it comes to 5G standalone (SA). You’ll have more opportunities to create value among the enterprise and industry segments, as well as expanding collaboration with application developers.

Network slicing, edge computing and network exposure are the enablers that will allow you to deliver maximum value from your network, and unlock new levels of innovation by offering faster speeds, improved latency and better quality of service.

Be the first to market, lead the way to offer the best for your customers.

Innovate your 5G Core network

Leading the market: Let’s unlock new use cases together

Broadcasting case: Network slicing on a public 5G SA network

In the UK, King Charles’ coronation was broadcast to millions. ITN and Vodafone’s broadcast of the occasion was one of the first to utilize network slicing on a public 5G SA network, powered by Ericsson’s 5G RAN and 5G Core technology. Listen to the podcast or read more about the case.

Automotive case: Optimizing data upload with exposure

Vehicle manufacturers have their eyes on data transmission using mobile networks due to high costs and difficult efficiency controls. Ericsson’s exposure of 5G network status and analytics allows service providers to avoid network congestion and offload vehicle data. Read this blog post to learn more about network exposure.


Time to offer premium connectivity to consumers

Guess what a prime topic at Mobile World Congress Monetizing 2023 was? Naturally, it was 5G networks – with a focus on optimizing core networks for latency and privacy through a distributed user plane function. Learn more in this blog post.

Optimize experience quality on smartphones

Ericsson Dynamic Network Slice Selection enables flexible separation of services and enhances traffic steering to maximize the quality of an experience on a single device. Discover more about the solution in our brief and the news about how Android 14 supports network slicing.

New 5G Core capabilities for premium services experience

The new capabilities in 5G Core enable two differentiated service connectivity monetization methods for service providers via four different capabilities based on policies and business rules. Discover more about the advanced use cases and features in this blog post.

Dive into the three 5G Core enablers

Network slicing plays a vital role in helping you to offer innovative services so that as a service provider, you can enter new markets and expand your business.

It’s particularly key for enterprise users, who expect services to be delivered quickly and securely, with automated operations where possible. Network slicing has the answers, providing service flexibility, speed, high security, isolation and other applicable characteristics to meet SLAs.

When it comes to network slicing, we’ve got you covered.

Network exposure means making network capabilities easily available for service providers and third parties. Along with well-defined APIs, it is critical to achieving programmable networks that communicate with all IoT devices, handle edge loads and introduce the requirements of new 5G use cases, such as XR, smart manufacturing and automotive sectors.

API exposure in 5G empowers developers to harness the unlimited potential of the network, driving innovation and enabling the seamless integration of 5G capabilities into various industries.

Edge computing is a distributed framework which brings application processing and storage closer to where data is generated or consumed. It unleashes benefits such as high bandwidth and low latency, as well as improvements to performance, security, operating costs and reliability of applications and services.

5G and edge computing are opening a world of new revenue opportunities, from manufacturing and gaming, to entertainment and retail. It’s got to be part of your game plan as a service provider.
