Webinar Summary

Time:  08:00 – 09:30 (CET)
Location:  My MWC online

Active Network Sharing has provided significant introduction and growth benefits for the last 2 generations of network deployments. It is common practice across Europe and Asia. The introduction of new technologies in the 5G Era, such as; 5G NR architectures, Active Antennas, Virtualisation, Edge Compute, Network Slicing and Open Networking will re-shape active sharing architectures and commercial principles, maybe even requiring further specification work. This seminar will discuss the forming GSMA Foundry project and the work that needs to be undertaken to accelerate the adoption of 5G Sharing.

础设施共建共享最近两代移通信网的快速部署和模具有著的好,在欧洲和洲都得到了广泛的用。在5G代引入的一些新技,例如新空口架构、主式天线、虚化、边缘计算、网切片和开放网共建共享的技架构和商模式提出了一些新的要求,也可能一些范的更新提出了要求。本次峰会将讨论成立相GSMA新工坊目,以加速5G共建共享在全球移通信网中的·引入。
