SK Telecom and LG-Ericsson prepare 5G without SDN

Pressés par la nécessité de proposer un réseau de télécommunication toujours plus confronté à l’exigence des utilisateurs en matière de capacité comme de réactivité, les opérateurs se tournent vers le SDN et la virtualisation du réseau à leur tour après les datacenters et entreprises. C’est dans cet esprit que Ericsson-LG et SK Telecom entrent dans un partenariat de R&D afin de développer la future génération d’architecture du réseau mobile.

La coentreprise Ericsson et LG, et l’opérateur coréen vont intégrer et tester les technologies de SDN (Software Defined Network), NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) et cloud. Ces innovations visent à faciliter la gestion du réseau pour les administrateurs, notamment en matière d’automatisation du provisionnement, tout en ouvrant la promesse de nouveaux services pour les opérateurs. Avec, à la clé, des économies de coûts, tant sur la capitalisation que l’opérationnel.
