Deutsche Telekom has partnered with Huawei to showcase all cloud based 5G E2E network slicing demo including RAN, Transport and Core network during the recent MWC in Barcelona.

The joint demo was conducted in Deutsche Telekom’s 5G:haus lab based in Bonn, Germany, and aims to validate the global leading network slicing technology applied for the future-coming diversity 5G applications.

5G E2E network slicing technology was based on Huawei all cloud architecture, enabled multiple industry service over one physical network. Massive MIMO with C-band realized 1Gbps throughput. CloudRAN allocated radio resource for eMBB slice and guaranteed low latency slice based on slice awareness capability. Cloudified transport network (aka. CloudMetro) achieved data plane isolation over IP+Optical Infrastructure, maintained different network topologies and SLAs (service level agreement) with respective control plane.

The network slicing management function provided slice design, deployment and monitor capabilities for fast operation. 5G network slicing technology will help the operators structure an open and flexible platform to support various services, said Huawei.

Chaobin Yang, President of Huawei 5G Product Line
5G network slicing can enable a logical isolated network based on mobile network, to provide diversified services in the future. Operators, vendors and vertical industrial players should cooperate and pave the way for commercializing 5G slicing network.

Bruno Jacobfeuerborn, CTO, Deutsche Telekom 
Network Slicing is the most important innovation for 5G, in this demonstration, we realized an E2E network slicing including RAN, transport, core network, and also massive MIMO C-band for high throughput, physical isolation and ultra-low latency mobile edge computing technology.
