HPE and Deutsche Telekom demonstrate Network Data Layer for 5G service-based architecture

HPE and Deutsche Telekom demonstrate Network Data Layer for 5G service-based architecture   PALO ALTO, Calif. and BONN, Germany – June 27, 2018 – Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Deutsche Telekom AG, announce that they have recently implemented the world’s first Network Data Layer (NDL) Proof-of-Concept integrating various Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) of different vendors in a cloud infrastructure.   Deutsche Telekom deployed NDL uses HPE Shared Data Environment (SDE) and is compliant with the principles of the Unified Data Layer that has been specified in standardization bodies[1]. It simplifies the creation of end-user services by exposing network capabilities to operator’s services and 3rd-party applications, and streamlines performance of the heterogeneous network environments for savings on network resources, and operational efficiency.   The NDL implementation, with multiple virtual instances of HPE’s SDE solution, dealt with diverse traffic patterns (5G UDR/UDSF) and high performance requirements of various stateless VNFs that externally store all their data. As demonstrated, such cloud-native VNFs benefit from a simplified internal architecture regarding redundancy, failure recovery, scalability and operability. Deutsche Telekom implemented a PCRF, as one of the integrated HPE SDE clients in the Proof-of-Concept, in a completely stateless mode and won the Policy Control Award 2018 for “most innovative data monetization solution[2]”.   Deutsche Telekom and HPE have proven that stateless clients, in combination with a Network Data Layer architecture, significantly reduce the complexity of...

ETSI Multi-access Edge Computing group publishes white paper on role for 5G

  ETSI Multi-access Edge Computing group publishes white paper on role for 5G Sophia Antipolis, 26 June 2018: The ETSI Multi-access Edge Computing group (MEC ISG) has just published a white paper outlining the role of MEC in 5G. MEC is a key enabling technology which enables the hosting of applications in the 5G access networks – a must have to support many applications and use cases. Edge computing is acknowledged as one of the key pillars for meeting the demanding Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) of 5G, especially as far as low latency and bandwidth efficiency are concerned. The white paper covers MEC for third-party cloud service providers, MEC for Serverless Computing and Cloud Integration for Massive IoT Devices, MEC for Enterprise Users and MEC for “Industrial IoT”. The emphasis of the white paper is on the opportunities for MEC to benefit from the edge computing enablers of the 5G system specification, and for 3GPP ecosystem to benefit from the MEC system and its APIs as a set of complementary capabilities to enable applications and services environments in the very edge of mobile networks. ETSI ISG MEC is the home of technical standards for edge computing. One of the key value-adding features of the MEC specifications is this ability for applications to gain contextual information and real-time awareness of their local environment through the standardized APIs. 5G networks based on...
