Solution Brief

Virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC)

The intelligent Foundation for Mobile Communications

With Affirmed’s virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC), mobile operators can modernize their mobile services networks and build toward 5G with a fully virtualized mobile core platform that leverages the cloud, microservices, automation, and service orchestration for “any G” efficiencies and innovation.

Affirmed’s vEPC solution delivers the advanced network capabilities that mobile operators need to deploy a complete 5G non-standalone architecture (NSA) network: control and user plane separation (CUPS), network slicing, service automation, and fully virtualized, cloud-native network functions. Yet the Affirmed vEPC can also deliver many of the benefits of 5G (e.g., enhanced mobile broadband, ultra-reliable low latency communications) without requiring a wholesale infrastructure upgrade. Whether deployed in a 4G or 5G NSA environment, the Affirmed vEPC can help mobile operators reduce costs and time to market while delivering new revenue-generating services right now including IoT services, private LTE services, edge computing, 5G services, and more.

A Mobile Network Platform Built on Four Pillars of Innovation

The Affirmed vEPC is built on four pillars of innovation that allow mobile operators to create new services faster, scale network capacity more gracefully, generate analytics-driven insights, and leverage edge computing efficiencies. Read More...
