Affirmed Networks announced that its virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) is now available to mobile operators on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Affirmed Networks' "Mobile Network as a Service" solution enables Mobile Operators to quickly and economically deliver both 4G and 5G services over a scalable cloud infrastructure without requiring excessive capital investments.
Cloud-based virtualized networks represent a new architecture for mobile network operators that provide superior flexibility, scalability, and performance over traditional hardware-based networks. The availability of Affirmed Networks' vEPC on AWS significantly lowers the total cost of ownership (TCO) to deliver next-generation mobile services, said Affirmed Networks.
With vEPC, operators can deliver differentiated services, such as IoT/M2M services, enterprise data services, MVNO wholesale services, 4G and 5G services, without costly data center or network infrastructure investments. The cloud offering accelerates an operator's ability to deliver new services, reducing overall time to market and enabling faster onboarding of subscribers. AWS's global reach allows operators to quickly and easily expand into new markets and geographies to drive revenue growth without increasing complexity.
