Affirmed Networks announced the introduction of the Affirmed UnityCloud, a webscale, cloud-native 5G solution that allows mobile operators to seamlessly converge multiple networks into one unified network.
The UnityCloud solution is currently engaged in several trials with tier one operators globally that are building 5G Standalone (SA) networks, said Affirmed Networks.
Affirmed UnityCloud significantly improves network economics by converging ‘Any G’, including 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, and wireline core on to one unified core. This eliminates the need for operators to maintain parallel legacy networks dedicated to just one service.
Affirmed UnityCloud is an innovation platform that helps operators quickly create and deploy new consumer, enterprise and IoT services. Operators can deploy new services in weeks vs. months to rapidly respond to market demands and compete with competitors. UnityCloud’s true microservice architecture enables automated fine-grained slicing so the solution can be tailored to the service. Operators can deploy services directly on enterprise premises when the use case demands, such as oil and gas and industrial automation.
