Huawei released the industry's first fully containerized 5G core network, supporting 2G to 5G full convergence
Recently, the first 5G core network summit was held in Madrid, Spain. During the summit, Huawei released the industry's first fully-contained 5G core network, introducing container technology into the full range of network functions of the core network to achieve more agile network deployment, speeding up business online, and helping operators build industry-wide The new business and new operations enable the digital transformation of the industry.
In order to meet the differentiated needs of industrial applications in the 5G era, the network needs to have the ability to quickly iterate and upgrade software to accelerate business innovation, low-cost trial and error, and achieve business agility. 3GPP introduced the Service-based Architecture (SBA) architecture in the 5G core network to implement flexible customization and on-demand combination of network functions. Huawei believes that the network function needs to be further micro-service disassembly to achieve faster version release, lighter deployment, and more flexible service orchestration. Container technology is the best way to carry the micro-service architecture, making 5G networks more agile and flexible, maximizing resource utilization, fast fault location and self-healing, in order to cope with the rapid changes in future business.
Since the NFV era, Huawei has adopted the original cloud technology in the core network, and has taken the lead in implementing innovative technologies such as stateless design, cross-DC deployment, and grayscale upgrade. It also released the world's first microservice-centric during the MWC in 2019 (Microservice- The 5G core network of centric architecture. Huawei is the first in the industry to release the first fully-contained 5G core network, supporting 2G/3G/4G/5G NSA/5G SA full convergence, enabling operators to build more agile, flexible and efficient 5G networks to meet industry diversification. Demand, achieving business success.
Huawei has the leading 5G capability from chips, products and networking. It is the only communications company in the world that can provide end-to-end 5G commercial solutions. Up to now, Huawei has signed more than 50 5G commercial contracts worldwide to help operators build 5G first-mover advantage and high-quality user experience.
