Network slicing is ready to impact
The successful service provider will be among those that can start leveraging the network slicing opportunity to expand their business today, with a preference to learn from the current in 4G. It’s time to put network slicing in action.
What is network slicing?
Network slicing is the operators’ best answer on how to build and manage a network, that meets and exceeds the emerging requirements from a wide range of enterprises. The way to achieve a sliced network is to transform it into a set of logical networks on top of a shared infrastructure. Each logical network is designed to serve a defined business purpose and comprises of all the required network resources, configured and connected end-to-end.
Why network slicing?
Network slicing enables the most economical model to provide service differentiation and meeting end user SLAs. The overall opportunity with network slicing is that it open up for new types of service offerings and support different enterprise business models, in a flexible way with a high service deployment velocity. It is an enabler to generate more revenues for the service provider, but at lower costs than with alternative solutions, and at maintained or improved network robustness.
For communication service providers, who are set out to build tailored services for both public and industries needs, we offer end-to-end network slicing through Ericsson´s RAN capabilities, NFVI, dual-mode 5G Core and Dynamic Orchestration, which provide them with programmability and full automation.
Unlike alternative solutions, we take a leading end-to-end approach originating from business needs and starting in 4G.
