BI Report || BusinessInsider
Smart device company OPPO recently announced the successful testing of a pre-commercial 5G enterprise network slicing solution in collaboration with Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies.
The creation of the solution marks an important step in realising practical 5G enterprise network slicing deployment and is designed to be implementable by network operators worldwide.
The three companies recently demonstrated the pre-commercial 5G enterprise network slicing solution at OPPO’s 5G Communications Lab, said a press release.
During this first demonstration of the solution, OPPO worked closely with Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies to achieve the connection between the core network, wireless network, and chip module.
This enables the steering of applications and enterprise services with specific requirements to defined slices without switching devices. Under the new solution, apps which are able to access the dedicated network slice are easily identifiable via a small icon displayed next to the main mobile app icon.
"Based on our company mission of ‘Technology for Mankind, Kindness for the World’, OPPO will leverage our strengths in innovation and collaboration across the tech ecosystem to advance the commercialization of 5G enterprise slicing technology. 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," said Xia Yang, senior director of Carrier Product Line of OPPO.
Besides, Monica Zethzon, head of Solution Area Packet Core at Business Area Cloud Software and Services of Ericsson said, "5G network slicing enables enterprises to meet their network security, reliability and flexibility needs. This solution, created in partnership with OPPO and Qualcomm Technologies 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.”
