Explosive growth in mobile traffic, fueled by smartphone subscribers consuming and sharing video, is expected to continue in the next wave of 4K, 8K and 3D formats, along with augmented and virtual reality apps. Connecting subscribers to their favorite media – regardless of location – and providing a better quality of experience (QoE) are becoming key retention strategies for service providers. In addition to video traffic, the increase of data coming from a multitude of IoT applications will surely test the network. Meanwhile, CSP’s are under pressure to lower their price, enhance user experience, be competitive, and to reduce churn.
With these factors, conventional RAN cannot keep up. It cannot aggregate capacity, nor can it handle local traffic surges. In addition, the current infrastructure is costly to maintain, and difficult to scale. This is why service providers are looking to vRAN as a solution that can help to:
- Improve performance
- Reduce cost
- Simplify expansion
- And enhance the user experience
Join us for this web seminar where we will discuss the business needs for, and benefits of, a vRAN solution for CSPs. We’ll also describe some of the key requirements for a robust vRAN deployment. And lastly, we’ll discuss the components of an end to end solution which is provided by Altiostar, Amdocs, Dell EMC, and Wind River.
This solution is a pre-integrated platform which comprises best-in-class server, storage and networking with ultra-low latency and high availability virtualization running an advanced performance and future-proof vRAN solution that provides rapid instantiation, massive scalability, self-healing and automation through network orchestration and service chaining.
