ZTE’s Other Offerings For 5G Core Network
ZTE Corporation is a leading telecommunications equipment and systems company that offers a range of solutions and services for 5G networks, including the 5G core network. The 5G core network is the heart of the 5G network and is responsible for managing and controlling the various functions and services of the network. It is built on a service-based architecture, which enables operators to quickly and easily deploy new services and applications by using reusable service components. Except for 5G core network, ZTE Corporation boasts several other achievements in 5G field.
ZTE Corporation develops a cloud-native core network that is designed to be highly scalable, flexible, and efficient, enabling operators to deliver new services and applications quickly and cost-effectively. Cloud Native Core Network(or CNCF) from ZTE Corporation facilitates the delivery of improved services to different industries, aiding them in their digital transformation efforts.
CNCF enables organizations to create and operate flexible applications in various environments, such as public, private, or hybrid clouds. This is accomplished through the use of technologies such as micro-services, stateless design, service grids, containerization, immutable infrastructure, and declarative APIs. These technologies facilitate the creation of a loosely coupled system with robust fault tolerance, easy management, and observation. By utilizing reliable automation techniques, cloud native technologies allow developers to modify the system frequently with predictable outcomes.
ZTE Corporation offers a network slicing solution that allows operators to divide the network into multiple virtualized networks, each with its own set of resources and capabilities. This enables operators to provide customized services to different customers and applications. It supports the slicing of applications at the user level, precise measurement of multi-dimensional SLAs based on factors such as DNN and slicing, and a closed-loop guarantee based on NWDAF to facilitate streamlined operations. The solution also offers multi-layer security isolation, such as the management layer, NFVI layer, and slice layer.
ZTE Corporation collaborates with various vertical industries and operators, such as industrial manufacturing, iron, port, and steel, smart grid, healthcare, and education, to enhance the commercial deployment of slicing. Except for supporting the slicing service of B2C, ZTE E2E slicing solution also enables NSaaS by offering online sales and wholesale of slices in slicing stores and markets. This allows operators to explore new business models such as B2B, B2B2C, and B2B2X. Operators can sell slices directly to enterprises or in batches to powerful partners who can later retail slices to industry consumers to establish a new 5G business ecosystem.
