China Mobile and ZTE Develop 5G-Oriented Future Network Architecture
SHENZHEN, CHINA: ZTE– a provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet– and China Mobile, announce its 5G-oriented future network architecture design concept, and network slice prototype system.
The new technology in combination with the latest generation of Intel Xeon processors provides key design insights for the future of 5G network architecture.
This 5G network slice prototype system is based upon 5G network function componentization, requirements-based orchestration and customization. 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.
The company demonstrates Intel RSA-based access node/edge node/core node hardware prototype, enabling the building of real mobile broadband and MEC- video monitoring 5G slice applications via a visible network slice orchestration system.
5G network service slice deployment enables future networks to be flexible, efficient and economical. The system meets the requirement of multi-system, variable scenarios and business modes.
ZTE’s ongoing researches towards visualization/5G fields include developments of related tests with Tier-1 operators and partners.
5G is the name being given to the fifth-generation wireless broadband technology based on the IEEE 802.11ac standard. Features include significantly faster data transfer speeds as compared with the present generation of 4G, ultra-low latency and integration with the Internet of Things (IoT) adding to a more connected world.
