ZTE pushes rapid commercial 5G use

Commercial 5G: ZTE Corporation, a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, just unveiled its 5G Common Core solution at the SDN NFV World Conference in the Hague. ZTE will launch the commercial 5G version of this Common Core solution for 2/3/4/5G/Fixed in the first quarter of 2019, according to Tu Jiashun, Principal Scientist of ZTE Virtualization, who delivered a speech in the theme of “Evolution to Common Core for 2/3/4/5G” and elaborated how ZTE is capable of assisting operators to build a more efficient, advanced and agile convergent core network to maximize network value at the event.

This solution, based on the latest 3GPP R15 SBA, adopts technologies such as CUPS (Control and User Plane Separation), convergent architecture, distributed resource pool, and network slicing to quickly build an agile and efficient convergent core network. It aims to address various application scenarios in 2/3/4/5G/Fixed and vertical industries, so as to help operators carry out digital transformation and 5G evolution smoothly.
Cloudification is the foundation of 5G core network and the prerequisite for the evolution from 4G networks to 5G networks. ZTE’s Common Core is used to deploy the cloud EPC network based on the CUPS technology and service architecture, thereby greatly improving O&M efficiency and resource utilization and helping operators reduce CAPEX and OPEX as well. It moves the user plane to edge DCs to improve user perception and save transmission resources. Therefore, 5G technology can be applied to 4G networks ahead of time, improving the flexibility and advancement of the network, promoting service innovation, and bringing new business models. Hence, operators could share the benefits brought by technological changes in advance.
