Cisco completes PoC to build a 5G SA network for KDDI

Wednesday 26 February 2020 | 14:30 CET | News
Cisco has completed a proof of concept (PoC) with Japanese operator KDDI to build KDDI's 5G standalone (SA) network. As part of this trial, Cisco is demonstrating the benefits of cloud native software with the Cisco Ultra Packet Core platform. It works alongside technologies such as 'network slicing', NFV, and automation via the Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) to support specific consumer and enterprise customer use cases. Through its collaboration on this concept project, Cisco is powering KDDI's commercial 5G services launch scheduled for this year.
