Ericsson and FET pave the way for 5G network slicing using LPG

MWC has been announced in Barcelona this year 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 for efficient bandwidth utilization, data security, low latency, and an overall more efficient network. 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 first Local Packet Gateway call worldwide, taking place in Far EastTone Telecommunications (FET) 5G Laboratory for commercial delivery. It was also the first to successfully demonstrate 5G network slicing using Ericsson dual-mode 5G core including local packet gateway and dynamic radio resource allocation (5G Radio Access Network (RAN) slicing Ericsson solution) to efficiently allocate radio spectrum and manage the service level agreement of network parts.

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 wide range 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.

The demonstration is the latest in a series of slicing breakthroughs for Ericsson’s 5G network announced with CSP and facility manufacturing partners. For example, in February Ericsson and FET release full case study demonstrating world’s first 5G end-to-end (E2E) multi-network slicing across multiple 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.
