Malaysia’s DNB Will Be First To Use Ericsson’s 5G RAN Slicing Solution
Dynamic Radio Resource Partitioning will ensure configured spectrum resource sharing among mobile network operators using Digital Nasional Berhad’s 5G network.
The 5G network by Malaysia’s Digital Nasional Berhad (DNB) will be the first commercial network in the world to apply Dynamic Radio Resource Partitioning, a 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) Slicing solution from Ericsson.
The technology will enable six mobile network operators (MNOs) to deliver customised 5G services with guaranteed performance over a single network.
Each MNO sharing DNB’s network has access to the full spectrum asset to achieve the best possible speed, while simultaneously ensuring the pooled spectrum is efficiently used and maximised among all other MNOs.
The Ericsson solution provisions each MNO to ensure a good end-user experience. This allows each MNO to offer services that meet the Service Level Agreements (SLA) and provides guaranteed resources as configured.
Dynamic Radio Resource Partitioning is one of the features of Ericsson 5G RAN Slicing. The software solution dynamically allocates spectrum resources.
That means RAN Slicing optimises radio resources, strengthening end-to-end slicing capabilities for dynamic resource management and orchestration.
This ensures fast and efficient delivery of services as well as the high-quality user experience required by diverse use cases.
Ericsson says that RAN Slicing gives MNOs the differentiation and guaranteed performance needed to monetise 5G investments with diverse use cases, which drives value for the network with 5G as an innovation platform.
As the 5G market matures, Dynamic Radio Resource Partitioning will set the foundation for end-to-end slicing and allow MNOs to offer innovative and high revenue-generating use cases.
Ericsson has ongoing 5G network slicing engagements for RAN, transport, core network and orchestration across the globe.
These involve diverse use cases in the consumer segment, enterprises/industry verticals such as video-assisted remote operations, AR/VR, TV/Media for sports event streaming, cloud gaming, smart city, and applications for Industry 4.0 and public safety.
