In addition to being able to handle 2G, 3G & 4G 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 a 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 support new use cases and differentiated experiences including private networks and will be a source of new revenue for the mobile operators.
