In order to fulfill requirement of future explosive data traffic growth, massive equipment connections and emerging new business, 5G will change from the "technology-oriented" to "user experience oriented" , the application scenario will span the mobile Internet and machine type communication, to achieve the goal of intelligent interconnection with all things and human, to achieve "information arrives when required, all things may be contacted by network" vision.
The development goal of 5G is to achieve continuous wide-area network coverage, high-capacity hotspot, low-power and large-connection as well as low-latency and high-reliability, to meet diversified service needs of eMBB, mMTC, uRLLC and other application scenarios.
ZTE's Cloud ServCore core network ZXUN CSN already has the main features of the 5G core network, and is 5G Ready.
The Cloud ServCore NGC solution and ZXUN CSN product have the following characters:
● To realize cloud core network over unified NFVI hardware via NFV/SDN Technical.
● Core network is based on Cloud Native architecture. Each network function are implemented by a group of stateless microservice components. By the flexible combination of different components, we can realize the network rebuilding from “network element orient” architecture to “service orient” architecture.
● Service is provided via slice. It may realize service and network are customized according to requirement to fulfill diversified enterprise requirements, such as VR/AR, CAR network, automatic of factory, intelligent city, smart power grid.
● ZTE introduce carrier-grade DevOps platform to provide close-loop mode “zero touch” smart maintenance, and to realize automatic design, automatic deployment, automatic development and automatic maintenance.
● ZTE core network supports to convergent access capability of 2G,3G,LTE,LTE-A,NB-IoT and WiFi.
● ZTE introduces MEC - (Multi-Access Edge Computing) , which support to move the anchor of user plane to the edge node. It may realize ultra low latency, high bandwidth and real-time internet access.
