MAVENIR FLAGS STANDALONE 5G CORE TRIAL WITH DEUTSCHE TELEKOM

26 June 2020

Mavenir has flagged trials with Deutsche Telekom (DT) on standalone 5G core network technology. The US-based vendor said it tested its containerized 5G core solution on the German operator’s cloud network infrastructure.

It particularly highlighted support for what it described as “4G/5G combo-core functionalities.” This is presumably referring to the need to allow 5G and 4G cores to co-exist for some time to come, and boasted its 5G core uses “web-scale technology and cloud-native principles.”
