Webinar On-Demand: Evolution of Mobile Core Networks for 5G and Beyond

7/09/2020, ,1:00:20

Core Network transformation is a key part of 5G network deployment. Virtualisation and Cloud Data Networks provide fundamental technology to enable new network capabilities that go beyond 5G.

The webinar will discuss the evolution of 3GPP Core Networks, and the role of Data Centre Networks and Virtualisation in the new 5G Core Network. This will include the role of the fundamental technologies of SDN (Software Defined Networks) and NFV (Network Function Virtualisation) in the evolution.

To see the whole ‘end to end’ picture we will also consider the connectivity and integration with the Radio Access Network (RAN) and the trends driving this area. Similarly, the mechanisms to support MEC (Mobile Edge Computing) for Data Network connectivity will be explained.

In addition, a key objective for 5G is to support new ‘industry verticals’ such as ‘Smart Factory’, and so the new requirements for timing sync and Industrial Networks will be included. Finally, the future evolution ‘beyond 5G’, and first ideas for 6G architecture will be introduced.
