Telecom operators are looking for a cost-effective operational solution to provide #5G connectivity to enterprises.

Network slicing can deliver the needed QoS & security while providing simplified operations and at the scale of cloud.

Working with Telefonica, we at Capgemini have designed and implemented a proof-of-concept for an end-to-end network slicing solution entirely provisioned and managed from the cloud together with partners like Microsoft.

Intel Corporation provided on-prem infrastructure for virtualized baseband. We worked with Ciena / Blueplanet, Juniper Networks, and Casa Systems, Inc. to build this first of its kind multi-vendor disaggregated network slicing solution that softwarizes the network as much as possible and simplifies the operations, orchestrating the entire solution from cloud.

Together, we’ve shown that it’s possible to build a broad ecosystem that can overcome the challenges of network slicing using end-to-end automation. The goal was to build pre-integrated network blueprints that can significantly reduce the cost of new network planning, design, and test cycles.
