The 5G network architecture requires slicing to efficiently deliver various services within a single network. Each slice will use some of the network’s shared resources to deliver a specific service with a specific service-level agreement (SLA) to specific devices. Different slices will be required for low latency, maximum throughput and massive IOT services, just to name a few.
In addition, FlexE (flexible Ethernet) can be implemented to achieve low latency slicing and assign the necessary dynamic bandwidth required for certain applications like live sporting events. The FlexE technology will adjust service bandwidth based on data usage and speed requirements without over-provisioning the network. FlexE bandwidth connectivity can be scaled up or down, as per service requirements.
In this webinar, we will cover 5G network slicing concepts, the basics of FlexE technology and how you can monetize your 5G network, slice by slice.
