Virtualization of Wireless infrastructure has perhaps the strongest global momentum today. While partly due to strong economics, this trend mostly reflects 5G’s need for a programmable network.
Disaggregation and virtualization of the Radio Access Network (RAN) and Evolved Packet Core (EPC) are well underway. Self-Organizing Networks (SON) will provide a new level of coordination and self-healing. Network Slicing will enable a whole new class of innovative wireless offerings.
This flexibility comes at a cost: an enormous set of disparate telemetry across the Wireless Data and Control planes that must be instantaneously analyzed and actioned in a closed-loop fashion.
SONAR4 future-proofs today’s 4G Wireless Services, and readies you for the step-function in capabilities that 5G demands.
The promise of the 5G ‘Tactile Internet’ depends upon a high-density programmable RAN.
The Evolved Packet Core (EPC) and related Diameter Signaling Controllers (DSC) composite applications are ripe for disaggregation.
Virtualization of the EPC and RAN allows a finer degree of control and programmability than ever before possible.
