Verizon, Ericsson to introduce cloud-native technology in live wireless core network environment

Monday 15 July 2019 | 19:36 CET | News
Verizon and Ericsson have introduced a cloud native, container based technology on the core of Verizon's active network in a proof-of-concept trial in a live network environment. This trial, what Verizon calls the first container-based wireless EPC (Evolved Packet Core) technology deployment in a live network in the world, introduces a much more efficient way to deliver operational applications that run the network. It's a platform that will increase agility and enable deployment at scale for new services in 4G and 5G, Verizon said.
