Vodafone Idea announced it demonstrated 5G network slicing at Gandhinagar in Gujarat — using Nokia’s 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) and 5G core.
Deployment of network slicing will enable Vi to quickly add new revenue streams while delivering innovative 5G use cases to the users and to enterprises.
Experts claim that network slicing allows telecom service providers to create multiple virtual networks over the same physical network. These virtual networks can be configured based on different parameters, including network performance, speed, bandwidth and latency to offer differentiated services.
Network slicing allows service providers to cost-effectively address the requirements of diverse customers by creating network slices in line with Service Level Agreements (SLAs) within minutes.
“Network slicing will allow our enterprise customers to gain new competencies and efficiencies from 5G-powered use cases, like Virtual Reality, Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT), among others,” said Jagbir Singh, CTO at Vodafone Idea.
Vi will be demonstrating Network Slicing use case on 5G at India Mobile Congress 2021.
