Amdocs, a leading provider of software and services to communications and media companies, has announced the completion of an end-to-end 5G network slicing Proof of Concept (PoC) with A1 Telekom Austria Group. The PoC demonstrates the ability of Amdocs’ end-to-end service and network orchestration offering to drive next-generation experiences and on-demand connectivity for consumers and enterprises through the deployment, management and monetisation of 5G network slices.
Network slicing, which is enabled by 5G Standalone (SA), allows communications service providers to address specific customer requirements through the creation of multiple high capacity, low latency dedicated and shared services across the same physical and virtual network.
The project with the European operator highlights the benefits of Amdocs’ vendor-agnostic, multi-domain, flexible service and network orchestration solution and its ability to automate and simplify the provisioning and life cycle management of 5G network slices. During the trial, Amdocs’ solution was used to demonstrate end-to-end life cycle management of 5G network slices and virtualised applications over public/private cloud and Edge, including design, build, instantiation, modification and termination with automatic closed-loop capabilities.
Amdocs also showcased the monetisation potential of next-generation 5G SA by creating new and innovative commercial models that are aligned with 3GPP standards, including a simulated customer-facing portal for ordering network slices. The conclusion of the PoC was that both design time and time to market were significantly reduced from hours or days to just minutes.Click below to share this article
