Enables Secure and Flexible Service Deployment at the 5G Edge

Enables Secure and Flexible Service Deployment at the 5G Edge

Next-Gen Central Office (NGCO) presents the concept of unified edge NFVi (NFV infrastructure) converging both fixed-line and mobile traffic management, leveraging virtualization technology and cloud-based computing architecture. For optimal performance, NGCO is usually deployed between the Radio Access Network (RAN) and Central Core Cloud, and functions as a carrier-grade edge NFV data center to execute customizable footprint and VNFs. The NGCO is considered as a cloud-native, virtualized edge to run VNFs, SDN (and its derivatives), C-RAN and open source software onto a standardized Intel x86 white-box hardware.

Key Enabling Technologies

  • Network Function Virtualization

    Transform hardware-oriented networking functions towards software centric solutions with extremely flexible service provisioning

  • Software Defined Networking

    Separate the network’s control and forwarding planes to improve performance with dynamic, programmatically efficient network configuration

  • White-box

    Use generic x86-based network devices opposed to proprietary hardware to meet the interoperability in different applications

  • Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter

    Leverage OCP compliant hardware platforms with open Virtual Network Functions and OSS/BSS management platforms

  • Mobile Edge Computing

    Automate content delivery services from proximity with ultra-low latency communications and contextual awareness

  • Fixed and Mobile Network Convergence

    Enable transmissions of data, voice and video among mobile and fixed networks no matter what end users’ locations and devices
