Cisco to help Verizon develop 5G enterprise services

Monday 27 February 2017 | 12:50 CET | News
Cisco announced it's participating in Verizon's 5G trials. As a member of the Verizon 5G Technology Forum, Cisco will help the US operator develop services for enterprise and SMB customers based on 5G connectivity. Cisco elements used in Verizon's 5G pre-commercial pilots include a virtualized, cloud-based, 5G Technology Forum-compliant packet core as part of the Cisco Ultra Service Platform. This increases service velocity by providing on-boarding and operational simplification for virtual network functions that help enable individual applications to be delivered to customers in real-time.
