Telefónica and Ericsson launch private virtualized networks for Industry 4.0

Telefónica and Ericsson are continuing their long-standing partnership to offer business customers an Enterprise Private Network solution that addresses the high-bandwidth and low-latency requirements for industrial mobile communications.

Industrial digitalization has generated a need to enable high-speed and flexible connectivity for Industry 4.0 communications. Now, for the first time, Telefónica is making advanced technologies such as network slicing and vEPC (virtual Evolved Packet Core) available to its enterprise customers.

The Enterprise Private Network solution, which uses Ericsson’s core network technology, brings Telefónica’s network to end customers through ultra-edge computing. This approach increases bandwidth significantly while simultaneously minimizing response times, thus achieving a significant improvement of communication quality.
