Ericsson and Far EasTone pave the way for new 5G network slicing cases via local packet gateway

Announced at this year’s MWC in Barcelona, ​​the Ericsson Local Packet Gateway is designed to enable communications service providers (CSPs) to take advantage of advanced computing capabilities in virtual and hybrid 5G private network segments to efficiently utilize bandwidth, data security and low latency. and create a more efficient network overall. Built on cloud-based, microservices-based technology, it provides a small-footprint, easy-to-deploy edge user panel that brings network user traffic management closer to the source, meaning CPTs and enterprises can better maintain or shut down traffic. to the premises.

The demonstration completed the world’s first local packet gateway call at Far East Telecommunications’ (FET) 5G lab for commercial delivery. It was also the first to successfully demonstrate 5G network slicing using Ericsson’s dual-mode 5G core, including a local packet gateway, and dynamic radio resource allocation (a 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) slicing solution from Ericsson) for efficient allocation radio spectrum and control. service level agreement of parts of the network.

Chee Ching, President of Far EasTone Telecommunications, says: “As a leading communications service provider, Far EasTone Telecom actively invests in research and development to develop cutting-edge technologies to best serve its customers. Demonstrating the world’s first data call using the Ericsson Local Packet Gateway shows a clear path to building 5G networks and services that meet our customers’ needs for low latency, increased efficiency, security and flexibility. With Ericsson’s continued support, we will work with our customers to take full advantage of this innovative and valuable new solution.

David Chou, president of Ericsson Taiwan, says, “With the high-performance FET 5G network that underpins industrial digitalization, 5G capabilities have opened up a wealth of opportunities for special use cases. Ericsson Local Packet Gateway is designed to help CPT take advantage of virtual and hybrid 5G private network segments. The test will speed up implementations where higher data throughput and low latency are required.

Monica Zethzon, head of Packet Core solutions at Ericsson, says: “Ericsson has developed its native packet gateway solution to help CSPs support the most demanding enterprise edge use cases with network slicing and low latency. With over two decades of close strategic partnership, we are proud to be the first to successfully demonstrate this technology to customers worldwide using FETs. As the need for this type of deployment grows locally and internationally, we look forward to building on the capabilities we have demonstrated with AKT and bringing this technology to businesses and other users.

Ericsson, with its CSP and device manufacturing partners, announced the latest demonstration of its many 5G network slicing achievements. For example, in February Ericsson and FET have published a full case study demonstrating the world’s first 5G end-to-end (E2E) multi-network slicing on several commercial Android devices. The trial version allowed each application to have its own communication channel with promised speed, latency and reliability, all on one device and one network.
