Powering NaaS - How 5G Network Slicing can Accelerate Business Growth

Powering NaaS - How 5G Network Slicing can Accelerate Business Growth


5G network slicing is a network architecture that allows virtualized and separate logical networks to be multiplexed on the same physical network infrastructure. It is a service-oriented network approach that can be realized through the principles of software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV), which enable the development of flexible and scalable network slices on top of a common network infrastructure. The technology can play a critical role in supporting 5G mobile networks, which are designed to efficiently accept a diverse range of services with varying service level requirements (SLRs). This can eventually improve Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) portfolio of Communication Service Providers (CSPs) and has the potential to help them build better business relations with their customers. The report examines how 5G network slicing is generating enterprise use cases to solve some of the critical sector bottlenecks.
