Bangalore: Enea launched 5G MicroCore for enterprises using private 5G networks. For these enterprises, the new 5G MicroCore will play a key role in supporting smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0 initiatives.
The Stockholm, Sweden headquartered company is one of the leading suppliers of software for telecommunication and cybersecurity.
Enea has developed and designed its 5G MicroCore for a minimal footprint. The new 5G MicroCore is based on Enea’s 5G Core solutions deployed by some of the world’s largest tier 1 operators. There are multiple trials taking place in Asia for Enea’s 5G MicroCore.
As with the operator version the 5G MicroCore is interoperable, giving enterprises the freedom to mix and match best of breed products and avoid vendor lock-in.
The 5G MicroCore leverages several data management capabilities. Including Unified Data Manager (UDM), Authentication Server Function (AUSF) and User Data Repository (UDR) and delivers numerous benefits for enterprises to effectively manage their data.
Benefits include telco-grade reliability and security for data storage and access from the core to the edge to safeguard the enterprise network. The cloud-ready containerised architecture makes edge integration seamless, making it perfect even for very small-scale enterprise settings.
Zero-touch operations using self-management features enable easy configuration and fast deployment. The solution also works across private and public clouds including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Affirmed UnityCloud.
Several Asian enterprises are actively trialling the 5G MicroCore. In Asia, a number of businesses have launched private 5G networks in smart factories. These businesses require robust data management for automation and robotics to support Industry 4.0 initiatives.
ABI Research estimates that the Asia-Pacific region will leapfrog the rest of the world in private 5G network deployments. These deployments will account for more than 65% of global private network revenues by 2025. Enterprise networks in Australia, China, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and Singapore will be worth almost $7 billion.
“Thanks to our scalable, cloud-native software architecture, we can offer shrink-wrapped, out-of-the-box 5G solutions, unlike some legacy vendors who rely on bulky technology,” said Roland Steiner, SVP – Telecom Business Unit, Enea.
“With our 5G MicroCore, enterprises get the best of both worlds. A sophisticated 5G Core with telco-grade robustness delivered at the right scale for easy and fast provisioning. That’s why a growing number of vendors, system integrators and enterprises have turned to Enea,” added Steiner.
