Ericsson 5G RAN slicing: to each his own network

Ericsson 5G RAN slicing: to each his own network
Each device that connects to a network has different peculiarities, utilities, characteristics, roles and functions. Therefore, the resources that need to draw from the network itself are also different. With the arrival of 5G networks this aspect can be enhanced through a function on which Ericsson has got its hands on these days by presenting a 5G network slicing solution on its network infrastructure.

The Ericsson 5G RAN solution Slicing offers unique, multidimensional service differentiation management that allows you to dynamically allocate radio resources, implement slice-aware quality-of-service (QoS) policies and orchestrate end-to-end slices in order to respecting the SLAs (Service Level Agreements) required by the different use cases

In fact it is like dividing a single network into several logical networks, each of which has different characteristics, capacity, latency and speed. To each his own network, with the required characteristics, while relying on the same infrastructure.

5G RAN slicing: to each his own network

This aspect represents one of the strengths of the future of 5G, since it allows to provide targeted services by making the most of the network infrastructures installed in the area.

Ericsson's 5G RAN slicing allows for a much more efficient network slicing by dynamically optimizing the use of frequency resources. The differentiating element of our solution is the improvement of end-to-end management and orchestration support for a fast and efficient service delivery. In this way, operators can differentiate themselves and have the certainty of being able to offer the performance necessary to monetize 5G investments in different cases of use. With 5G as an innovation platform, we continue to generate value for our customers

For Narvinger, Head of Product Area Networks, Ericsson

“Currently,” explains the group, “Ericsson is working to 5G network slicing for the access network (RAN), the transport network, the core network and the orchestration, worldwide, with use cases for the consumer segment and for enterprises, such as remote assisted operations via video, AR / VR, TV / Media for streaming sports events, cloud gaming, smart cities and applications for Industry 4.0 and public safety ".

Each of these application areas has obvious differences from the others, requiring aspects of dedicated resources that can be optimized for example in terms of speed for streaming or latency for gaming: whatever the need for 'user, the operator will have the possibility to calibrate the offer with the certainty that the Network infrastructure will have the ability to manage everything for each single connection.

Ericsson's pride in this phase is that to be the first player in the 5G world to have achieved this goal. Thus Sue Rudd, Director, Networks and Service Platforms, Strategy Analytics: "Ericsson is the first vendor to offer a completely end-to-end RAN slicing solution, based on the dynamic partitioning of radio resources in less than 1 millisecond thanks to the use of built-in radio control mechanisms to ensure quality of service, over the air, in real time. This truly end-to-end approach integrates radio optimization with policy-driven network orchestration to provide private, virtualized and secure RAN slicing, without the loss of 30-40% spectrum capacity due to 'hard slicing'. End-to-end slicing can become profitable thanks to Ericsson's dynamic and real-time RAN slicing ".
