Carrier-Grade Mobile Packet Core Network on AWS

Affirmed Networks and AWS Jointly Develop Best Practices for Designing Carrier-Grade Mobile Packet Core Virtual Network Functions on AWS

This whitepaper introduces the key considerations and best practices for designing carrier-grade 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) Evolved Packet Core (EPC) workloads on AWS. These carrier-grade packet core network EPCs can support millions of mobile subscribers while meeting high availability and scalability requirements. AWS telecom partners have created carrier-grade EPC virtual network functions (VNF) tailored to the AWS Cloud that satisfy telecom industry requirements. This offers a new cost-effective, pay-as-you-go model for large, mobile core networks that is available globally in minutes.

With this solution, mobile network operators (MNO) or mobile virtual network operators (MVNO) can deploy new 4G core networks on AWS with the ability to easily evolve to the 5G core networks of the future. Read More...
