Sees Opportunities for Carrier Network Optimization and New Services with Assistance from Managed Service Providers and Integration with Mobile Edge Computing
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, August 5, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — One of the biggest challenges for carriers will be juggling multiple requirements found within each 5G category including eMBB, URLLC, and mMTC:
• Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB): Mobile broadband based apps including video watching, browsing, Mobile Office/Productivity, and cloud-based gaming.
• Ultra-reliable Low-latency Communications (URLLC): Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Telepresence (includes Holographic calling), Teleoperation/Tele-robotics, Autonomous Vehicles, UAV/Drone Operation, Public Safety, Smart Buildings and other latency-sensitive applications
• Massive Machine-type Communications (mMTC): 5G will facilitate a highly scalable M2M network for many IoT applications, particularly those that do not require high bandwidth.
Leading carriers will leverage their investment in Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) to optimize network slice allocation as well as overall network management and 5G orchestration. Network resources are deployed in a manner in which network elements and functions will be easily configured and reused. Physical elements are sliced logically into multiple virtual networks, which may be combined with various network functions on a case by case basis.
This will help enable a robust 5G applications market, but carriers cannot do it alone. Accordingly, Mind Commerce sees a strong managed services opportunity with the North America 5G network slicing managed services market will reach $25 million by 2024. In addition, the $100 million global market for virtualized servers in support of the mobile edge computing market will be of the keys to the success of network slicing and overall network optimization.
Importantly, vendors must help carrier manage both the core and radio network slicing for service customization. This includes both static and dynamic slicing. Managed service providers will provide provisioning, administration and support for both slice management and edge computing.
By leveraging the separation of equipment and functions via the vRAN architecture, carriers may allocate either static or dynamic resources with the former providing guaranteed allocation and the latter providing a shared resource with improved network optimization. This is all managed logically through mapping a network slice ID to a set of configuration rules in the RAN. Among other things, advantages include the ability to allocation slice-specific network functions in some cases and common control functions across network slices as use cases may dictate.
