Building Private 5G Networks

for industry 4.0 applications

 

>>  Automation, AI and IoT are transforming industries
>>  Innovative enterprise wireless strategies are required
>>  Private 5G or LTE delivers a robust and scalable solution

 

>>  Multi-access edge compute enables low latency services
>>  Requires 100% containerized CNFs with K8s orchestration
>>  Easily deployed, maintained and monetized by MSPs

 

An Opportunity

Industry 4.0 is transforming every vertical with smart and connected autonomous systems powered by massive, distributed, computing capable of applying deep machine learning algorithms to huge amounts of data. From immense distribution centers to the bustling ports processing a growing number of shipping containers stocking those warehouses; these modern enterprise operations are progressively depending on artificial intelligence (AI) automation using granular analytics from a plethora of sensors to meet the cost models and production levels expected by today’s consumers. Industry 4.0 also promises to directly improve the quality of life for those individual consumers, from providing live media streams at sporting events to enabling ad hoc public safety networks.

 

The Solution

With potentially hundreds of thousands of critical sensors and control points packed into large areas filled with unforgiving structural elements - debilitating to generic wireless technologies - LTE and modern 5G RF/RAN implementations are increasingly finding a home in these environments. Employing high-powered licensed assisted, lightly licensed (CBRS / Shared Access) or totally unlicensed spectrum, these trusted commercial technologies can deliver a highly reliably and scalable alternative to even the latest Wi-Fi versions. Private 5G or LTE provides the security, performance, low latency, high endpoint density, quality of service and management federations preferred by businesses and their System Integrator (SI) or Managed Service Provider (MSP) partners.

 

Our Uniqueness

Latency is the new currency today’s cutting-edge networks, so implementing a multi-access edge compute (MEC) cloud infrastructure can pay dividends. Featuring flexible RAN connectivity options, seamless interworking with public or private cloud platforms such as Microsoft's Azure Stack Edge and employing just a handful of CPU Cores, Metaswitch’s Fusion Core is the most comprehensive and easiest solution for deploying Private mobile networks. With compute capabilities at the customer premise, latencies of less than 5ms can be achieved. Carrier edge and core compute clouds, enabled by Azure or any other enterprise cloud infrastructure, can extend Private LTE or 5G implementations with managed real-time services and analytics applications.

Fusion Core in Multi-access Edge Compute Clouds

In this short video, we show how the Azure private MEC pieces come together. We show how the Azure portal can manage an Azure Stack Edge device and how we assign an Azure Network Function Manager resource to it. We then demonstrate the simple Metaswitch Fusion Core provisioning interface and the minimal number of steps it takes to completely configure our 5G Core. Once the deployment is complete, we introduce some of the tools available via the Metaswitch virtual network function (VNF) manager that can ensure the individual network functions and entire end-to-end infrastructure is operating as expected.  Click here to learn more.
