5G holds great business potential for operators: Creating new services, new revenue streams and enhancing competitiveness.
The 5G network buildout, however, poses several challenges for those operators.
The main challenges are around performance and scaling. This is due to the extremely fast ramp-up expected for 5G traffic, alongside the fact that the 5G core and RAN can be cloud-native and run network functions over servers and other compute instances.
Operators need to make sure that their user-plane functions can accommodate the required capacity and latency performance and can scale in a way that makes business sense (i.e., with a reasonable footprint, box count etc.)
The DriveNets Network Cloud solution offers the unique capability for abstracting both networking and compute hardware resources into a shared resource pool that could be used by a variety of network functions, sharing the same hardware cluster.
This allows operators to leverage a unified infrastructure for all 5G domains: 5G core, 5G IP backhaul and 5G RAN, as well as fixed network domains while achieving higher performance, elasticity and convergence.
DriveNets Network Cloud accommodates both routing functions and 5G core/RAN functions over the same infrastructure, leveraging:
