The promises of 5G go well beyond high data rate, spectral efficiency, ultra-low latency, or massive sensor networks.
The fundamental appeal of 5G lies in the fact that the entire infrastructure acts as a cohesive platform for innovative applications and is tuned to flex with demand - providing services tailored to their unique characteristics. While the infrastructure may encompass discrete components from multiple vendors and heterogeneous wireless networks, it is designed to be a fully programmable and an interoperable framework both in the core and radio resource management.
These fundamental building blocks are not retrofits but built from the ground up with new and evolved communication architectures such as:
- Software-defined Networking (SDN)
- Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)
- Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC)
- Network Slicing
- Cloud-based Radio Access Networks (C-RAN).
This smart network infrastructure and an enhanced ability to support exponential scale for connectivity open the doors to innovative applications across a variety of markets such as connected cities, smart agriculture, smart manufacturing, connected healthcare, virtual reality, and autonomous vehicles.
Mavenir is committed to cloud-centric NFV infrastructure (NFVI) across its end-to-end 5G portfolio (C-RAN, EPC, IMS, Security, and other critical solutions), using open development techniques and programming tools to deliver the networks of the future.
