In addition to being able to handle 5G, 4G, 3G, 2G RAN and Core functionality, the Software Suite would be able to support multiple 5G network architecture deployment options simultaneously. Each gNodeB can be configured to work as an en-gNB for NSA Option 3/3a/3x or as gNB for SA Option 2. Intelligent algorithms in the software platform can handle routing of signalling and data from each eNB/gNB to the required EPC/5GC. The intelligent algorithms are also able to provide slicing like functionality to legacy 2G/3G networks as well as 4G.
Slicing helps to support new use cases and differentiated experiences including private networks and will be a source of new revenue for the mobile operators.
