Antel tests VMware Telco Cloud Platform for its 5G architecture

Antel, a leading mobile operator in Uruguay, is working with VMware on a VMware Telco Cloud Platform use test to support a Proof of Concept (PoC).

With the emergence of 5G, communications service providers can develop new business models and engage with a larger ecosystem of partners to deliver new and disruptive services.

This transformation requires a virtualized and containerized Telco Cloud architecture to modernize legacy networks. So the VMware horizontal multicloud platform is being used for 5G network deployments in South America, helping Antel in operational efficiency, services and innovation to market.

The integrated platform will allow new network functions on the same Telco Cloud architecture from core to RAN to edge, enabling the scale and agility needed to deliver services on the 5G network.

The PoC started with the help of AT Innovando Juntos, a local partner, and it aims to help Antel to build a world-class 5G network to support the growing demand in Uruguay. It is also a milestone to create a commercial 5G SA network.

Sanjay Uppal, Senior VP and General Manager at Service Provider and Edge, VMware, said: “To improve 5G networks, VMware offers a single platform to modernize network infrastructure efficiently and cost-effectively. We look forward to helping successfully trial the VMware Telco Cloud Platform.”
