To this end, ZTE proposed 5G Common Core Solution, which has the following characteristics:
●Leveraging NFV/SDN technology to achieve network cloudification on the unified physical infrastructure
●The core network uses Cloud Native architecture to subdivide network functions into atomized stateless micro-service components. Through the flexible call and combination of components, network function reconstruction from the "network element silo" architecture to the "service silo" architecture is realized.
●Providing services in the form of network slice, achieving on-demand customization of service and network, to meet a variety of vertical industry requirements in the 5G era: VR/AR, autonomous driving &connected cars , factory automation, smart city, smart grid…
●The Carrier DevOps Builder provides closed-loop “0 touch” smart operation and maintenance (O&M) for network slice, to achieve automated design, development, deployment and O&M of slices.
●The introduction of Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) moves service anchor and computing capability to the mobile edge node, to achieve ultra-low-latency, high-bandwidth and real-time network information access
ZTE 5G Common Core Solution has been equipped with main features of 5G core network, achieving 5G Ready, such as microservice-based Cloud Native architecture; deployment in minutes and elasticity in seconds of network slices; DevOps-based agile O&M and capability exposure. Leveraging the Cloud ServCore, operators can let user experiencing service of the 5G era in advance and make important contributions to operator's digital transformation to 5G.
