Securing 5G experience with software probes
Get customer centric insights from the start, to accelerate the 5G introduction without losing the focus on customer experience.
When the 5G experience is everything, it’s crucial to deliver on customer expectations from day one. The journey to 5G Core makes network insights more important than ever, but the traditional approach to data collection is unsustainable. With Ericsson’s dual-mode 5G Core, software probes are built-in, securing the output and ensuring optimal performance.
5G Core is designed for security. One of the cornerstones of 5G Core is the new Service Based Architecture (SBA) and increased security, where all the traffic is encrypted. This poses a problem for traditional probing solutions when it comes to capturing the desired data without breaching security. Software probes ensure sensitive data gets from A to B while maintaining content encrypted. Any data can be delivered to selected consumers over a secured, transparent and standardized interface.
With quality, actionable data, Ericsson Expert Analytics extracts customer-centric intelligence and have pre-built insights for 5G. Powered by AI to enable a higher degree of automation, it simplifies assurance with full end-to-end monitoring and troubleshooting. Actions can be taken based on insights and recommendations.
Use case British Telecom
Howard Watson, CTIO of BT, says: “Having evaluated different 5G Core vendors, we have selected Ericsson as the best option on the basis of both lab performance and future roadmap. We are looking forward to working together as we build out our converged 4G and 5G core network across the UK. An agile, cloud-native core infrastructure is at the heart of our ambition to enable the next generation of exciting 5G services for our customers and give the UK the world-class digital infrastructure it needs to win in the future global economy.”
