5G drives a wealth of applications, from IoT to telemedicine. It's not just about latency; bandwidth is key to massively expanding the scale and availability of these applications.
The new age network architecture is shaping up to meet imminent demands on the scalable networks that need more bandwidth and app-driven functions. This, along with capex/opex reduction for service providers, is driving new age SDN/NFV-centric 5G architecture.
STL is at the forefront of driving key 5G innovations to disaggregate and program the 4G/5G ecosystem. The new ecosystem entails disaggregation across RU, DU, CU, vBBU, RIC (RAN Intelligent Controller), EPC, 5G, Orchestration and OSS/BSS.
