Casa Systems and BT Win Best New 5G Technology at Broadband World Forum 2019October 31, 2019
Innovative 5G Core solution converges mobile and fixed networks simplifying overall network design, reducing cost and delivering a seamless user experience
Casa Systems, Casa Systems and BT took top honors as Best New 5G Technology for its joint Converged 5G Core proof of concept solution at last night’s Broadband Awards ceremony. The Broadband Awards recognize the very best achievements in next-generation broadband communications, applications, services and strategies.
Casa Systems and BT worked together to develop a converged 5G Core proof of concept solution that supports video and enterprise VPN services by combining the wireless user plane with the 5G Core. This innovative solution demonstrates how subscribers could use services seamlessly as they move between mobile and fixed connectivity. The 5G core and wireline BNG network functions are powered by Casa’s Axyom™ Software Platform on off-the-shelf hardware, which provides a state-of-the-art disaggregated and virtualized solution at the network edge.
This Converged 5G Core proof of concept activity is helping BT explore various mechanisms to fully optimize their network and lower costs by simplifying overall network design and improving resource utilization. Without a converged 5G core, service providers could find it difficult to manage the cost and complexity to support future service requirements.
“We are honored to receive this prestigious award for our Converged 5G Core solution,” said Jerry Guo, CEO, Casa Systems. “This recognition acknowledges the significant work that BT and Casa Systems have undertaken to demonstrate how a converged core could fundamentally change the way we architect and deliver networks to users wherever they are in the network.”
”We’re delighted to receive this award. BT is determined to deliver the best possible customer experience and this proof of concept demonstrates how a Converged 5G Core solution can contribute to that vision,” said Paul Crane, Network Research Director, BT.
Casa Systems is demonstrating its latest broadband innovations and solutions at this week’s Broadband World Forum, October 15-17 in Amsterdam. For more information, visit our BBWF event page.
