Telecom Pros Discuss Challenges of 5G Network Slicing

As we’ve discussed in previous posts, 5G promises to let communications service providers (CSPs) ‘slice’ the network to accommodate a wide range of applications with very different reliability, quality of service, security, latency, and throughput requirements. To accommodate such services, CSPs will create individual network slices on a multi-tenant, multi-operator network platform. Slices will be orchestrated and assured end to

5 Network Requirements for the 5G Network Revolution

In order to create a 5G network, we must transform three things: the radio access network, the core network, and the service creation layer. Radio access standards and available spectrum are still works-in-progress—but we have a good understanding today of the requirements of 5G. Here are the five core network requirements for 5G.   Create a Common Composable Core The
