Although long touted as the key to 5G revenue growth Network Slicing has been slow to materialize in the marketplace. Several key capabilities now allow Communications Service Providers (CoSPs) to overcome critical challenges that have hindered profitable End-to-End 5G Network Slicing. These new capabilities include:
• Emergence of Standards for Multi-Vendor, Multi-Domain Orchestration
• 3GPP Release 16 Specifications for Enhancement of Network Slicing (eNS), Non-Public Networking (NPN) and Hybrid Public Network Integrated Non-Public Network (PNI -NPN).
• Proven Models for End-to-End Slice provisioning, enablement and allocation
• Ways to meet QoS Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and retain the leverage of virtualization with Dynamic ‘soft ‘ Network Slicing
These are about to make 5G Network Slicing real in 2021 and 2022 and help CoSPs to find the ‘sweet spot’ for Metro-Area Network Slicing. This webinar will feature an engaging dialogue with experts from Strategy Analytics and Intel Corporation discussing these new capabilities as highlighted in a new report by Strategy Analytics.
Director Networks and Service Platforms Strategy Analytics
Sue Rudd has worked for 30+ years with Mobile, Telecoms and Internet service providers. At Strategy Analytics she focuses on opportunities for 5G Network Slicing, Telco Cloud, Edge services, FMC and Wi-Fi interoperability. She writes on 5G, Cloud Native Platforms, OSS and Cloud DB. Before Strategy Analytics, she worked for Comverse (now Mavenir), Motorola Cellular (now Nokia), Codex (Motorola), BBN (now Raytheon) and Burroughs (now Unisys). She has a BA and MA from Univ. Cambridge and MBA in Ops. Mgt. from Wharton.
Recent work includes competitive analyses of service platforms, OSS Orchestration, Service Enablement, Cloud DB evolution and 5G Core and Edge requirements. Recent publications include: ‘Automated End to End Network Slice Management is a critical 5G ‘Service Enabler’ for profitable eMBB, uRLLC and mMTC’, ‘Going Cloud Native will accelerate 5G services in 2020’ and ‘Management, Orchestration & Automation not just Overhead anymore.’
