WWT, Druid, and Intel evaluate the feasibility of a Public Cloud-Hosted Private Wireless 5G Core
Last Updated: Oct 10, 2023
The goal of this study was to assess the feasibility of the public cloud for hosting 5G core control plane functions, ensuring it can deliver the performance metrics demanded by the market. The virtualization and disaggregation of mobile network systems is leading to mobile network operators (MNOs) trialing and deploying an increasing number of network elements in the public cloud. Using the public cloud may bring a more flexible and beneficial cost structure for workloads thanks to the ability to scale these network elements to meet variable demands.
