Oppo and Ericsson finally make 5G network slicing breakthrough. Network slicing generally has been thought to provide guaranteed performance for certain applications on our devices.
Oppo and Ericsson Finally Make 5G Network Slicing Breakthrough
Qualcomm, Oppo, and Ericsson successfully have tested 5G enterprise networks slicing on a smartphone that is commercially available and in the process paving the way for this piece of tech to be used more widely.
Generally, network slicing is seen by operators as one of the best revenue opportunities for standalone 5G (5G SA) networks that make use of a completely virtualized, cloud-based core network. It also allows them to effectively access sections of certain parts of the network for some applications.
It might also interest you to know that slices can be customized easily to guarantee a certain latency or speed and to also cover a particular location, allowing industrial, broadcast, healthcare, and public service use type of cases. For instance, one network slick could easily carry video traffic at a stadium, while another slice on the other hand is kept for safety officials.
Oppo and Ericsson 5G Slicing
Although slicing is possible with LTE, bigger capacities, ultrafast speeds, and an ultralow latency of 5G will provide support for more advanced applications. The software-defined and cloud-based core layer of the networks on the other hand will allow the flexibility and the automation that is required to provide and manage any other number of slices.
This very type of trial was conducted at Oppo’s 5G communications laboratory and it demonstrated successful application and network traffic partitioning making use of Ericsson’s network kit and Oppo find X5 pro handset sunning android 12 and then powered by a processor from QUALCOMM and modem technology.
What Ericsson Has To Say About This Achievement
The progress simply builds on previous lab tests from a series of vendors and stakeholders in the industry. But the use of a commercial handset, however, is a major milestone.
Head of solution area packet core at business area cloud software and services, Monica Zethzon said ‘5G network slicing enables enterprises to meet their network security, reliability and flexibility needs. This solution, created in partnership with Oppo and Qualcomm and underpinned by Ericsson’s dual-mode 5G Core and 5G RAN Slicing technologies, provides a foundation for CSPs to deliver more tailored 5G services for enterprises.’
Oppo’s Statement in Regards to the Historic Achievement
Senior director of carrier product line at Oppo, Xia Yang said ‘5G enterprise network slicing is the key to realizing 5G-differentiated applications. Oppo will leverage our strengths in innovation and collaboration across the tech ecosystem to advance the commercialization of 5G enterprise slicing technology.’ He added ‘Together with our partners, we will enable a wide range of OPPO product users to be the first to enjoy a customized 5G connectivity experience.’
