Cradlepoint successfully demonstrates 5G Standalone network slicing

Cradlepoint has presented a real-world implementation of 5G Standalone (SA) network slicing.

The demonstration highlights how 5G network slicing will allow enterprises to take advantage of end-to-end performance guarantees over 5G Wireless WANs – similar to the SLAs available with MPLS.

Cradlepoint performed the demonstration at the Ericsson D-15 Labs, a state-of-the-art innovation center located in the heart of Silicon Valley.

Leveraging Ericsson’s 5G SA core and RAN, combined with Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Exchange Service Gateway and E3000 Series Enterprise Routers, the demonstration shows how video applications are protected from congestion when steered across an ultra-reliable low latency slice.

Using such a high-priority slice ensures an optimal quality of experience across distributed sites, vehicles, IoT and remote work environments.

With an estimated 30% of potential 5G use cases requiring network slicing as an enabler, 5G Standalone (SA) networks represent a significant inflection point for the next generation of wireless.

“While most of the proof of concepts demonstrating network slicing have been focused on smartphone and IoT use cases, the Cradlepoint and Ericsson D-15 Lab demonstration shows how enterprises will be able to implement network slicing with Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Exchange and SD-WAN enabled 5G routers,” said Donna Johnson, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Cradlepoint.
