China Mobile and ZTE Launch 5G-Oriented Future Network Architecture
SHENZHEN, CHINA--(Business Wire/Korea Newswire) February 22, 2016 -- ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet and China Mobile, today jointly show their 5G-oriented future network architecture design concept, and network slice prototype system. With the latest generation of Intel® Xeon® processor, the demonstration actively explores and promotes key designs for future 5G network architecture.
This 5G network slice prototype system is based upon 5G network function componentisation, requirements-based orchestration and customisation. It creates dynamic 5G application scenario network slices via a visible orchestration environment, including mobile broadband (xMBB), internet of things (IoT), mobile edge computing (MEC) and more. At Mobile World Congress, the technology demonstrates the Intel RSA-based access node/edge node/core node hardware prototype, quickly building real mobile broadband and MEC (video monitoring) 5G slice applications via a visible network slice orchestration system. This joint demonstration not only enables visitors to experience the technology at close range, but also promotes maturity of the industry.
5G network service slice deployment enables the future network to become more flexible, economic and highly-efficient. It can adapt to the requirements of multi-system, variable scenarios and business modes, which better support the future of digital mobile.
ZTE’s ongoing research and exploration in terms of visualisation/5G fields includes the development of related tests with global Tier 1 operators and partners. These tests have received a lot of active feedback and demonstrate the high performance level achieved by ZTE’s virtualisation/5G solutions. Currently, ZTE has virtualised core network deployments at 12 commercial offices and 32 office test sites.
