We are pleased to announce that, in a research report released this week by analyst firm GlobalData, Affirmed Networks’ 5G vEPC received an overall rating of “very strong.” Authored by lead analyst, Glen Hunt, the report evaluated Affirmed Networks’ capabilities and offerings across several categories, including: Technology, Go-to-Market, Market Momentum, and Service and Support.
The research effort, which evaluated several market participants independently, lauded Affirmed Networks’ solutions and capabilities across several areas. Specifically, their recognition praised Affirmed Networks’ market traction with Tier One operators, its cloud-native architecture, which has delivered industry’s leading performance, and the integrated Gi-LAN services and virtual probe capabilities that are part of the solution. The report also cited Affirmed Networks’ continual innovation, specifically in the areas of automation and network slicing that allow operators to address challenges and embrace new service opportunities. The report also acknowledged Affirmed’s “network as a service” model that effectively eliminates “large investments in infrastructure.”
Of the many areas of positive analysis, the report gave Affirmed Networks credit for making “significant inroads with multiple mobile operators, both large and small” and for its innovation that allows the company to deliver the “performance, operational efficiency, and agile mobile core services.”
We are honored to be analyzed so favorably by GlobalData and look forward to extending upon all of our areas of strength in the new year as we continue to help mobile network operators to transform their networks in preparation for 5G.
