Ericsson announced it has been selected by XL Axiata to deploy 5G-ready cloud core technology solutions in East Indonesia.
This includes Ericsson Cloud Packet Core and Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) solution. Ericsson’s solutions will help XL Axiata to prepare for this increase in data traffic, simplify operations and secure 5G revenues.
According to the June 2019 edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report, average data usage per smartphone is forecast to increase 10-fold on a 5G device in Indonesia.
Ericsson Cloud Packet Core, which includes applications such as Evolved Packet Gateway, allows for a distributed core network architecture to boost network performance in preparation for 5G.
Coupled with NFVI, the new core network will provide XL Axiata with an open and highly flexible solution, capable of deploying new technologies with built-in customizations and novel innovations.
“This will ensure the quick introduction of new services and help deliver better customer experience, while providing full-service continuity,” Yessie D. Yosetya, chief technology officer of XL Axiata, said.
