Nowadays, 5G is one of the most considered trends in international telecom and mobile communities, as well as the majority of related technical discussions are about the future of Access layer and supporting technologies similar to Cloud RAN (Radio Access Network), Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), etc. However, the future of Mobile Backhaul and Metro Networks is also an extremely important question.
One of the major 5G related trends is that Mobile Backhaul and Fixed Broadband networks would be merged to the unified multi-service infrastructure that accommodates different types of traffic. This transition has been driven by the need to support Customer’s connectivity regardless of Access technology and device type. Another notable trend is that the Mobile Packet Core would be distributed across the network to satisfy 5G requirements to latency. The converged Fixed/Mobile network would handle both classic Carrier Ethernet services and Mobile user’s sessions with the same unified infrastructure.
Considering the concepts, Brain4Net has developed the B4N Carrier Ethernet Transport solution that helps Service Providers build service-oriented Metro network infrastructures and strive to simplify the movement to agile backhaul network architectures. The B4N Carrier Ethernet Transport features the B4N Service Platform which leverages the synergy of SDN, NFV and Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO).
The solution provides the feature-rich SDN-based approach for building service-oriented Metro and Mobile Backhaul Networks with bare-metal hardware while ensuring tight integration of connectivity services with multi-tenant NFV applications in the Telco Cloud. B4N CE Transport addresses CSP’s network pain points and ensures:
- Automation of Carrier Ethernet services provisioning
- Reduced CAPEX by using bare-metal switches from ODMs instead of costly and over-functional MPLS-routers in Metro networks
- Introduction of effective cross-sale strategies by incorporating Customer VPN services with value-added VNFs
- Improved time-to-market
- Support forward-looking, integrated strategy for movement to 5G
That’s why Brain4Net has decided to take be a part of the event and bring something quite interesting to show at #MWC17!
“Mobile World Congress is the main global event for the telecom industry and Brain4Net is excited by the opportunity to be an exhibitor where we can share our strategic view with international Carriers, prospective technology ecosystem members and industry analysts,” said Oleg Schapov, CEO and Founder of Brain4Net. “We will present SDN/NFV based networking solutions, which leverage Network Disaggregation, Orchestration, Cloud experience and allow Carriers to perform painless transition to converged infrastructure and become ready to meet the requirements of 5G”
The Brain4Net team would be pleased to meet you in the Fira Gran via, Hall 6 to share our unique vision, demonstrate the latest technologies, negotiate partnership opportunities and discuss how our solutions can meet your business objectives.
