Overcoming the Challenges of 5G SA Service Assurance
The new generation of wireless connections has arrived: 5G has the power to simultaneously support an incredible number of connections by improving speed, latency, reliability, and power consumption of IoT devices.
5G Standalone is the architectural framework that makes it possible to deploy “pure” 5G. Both antennas and transport network are completely dedicated to 5G, without “leaning on” or integrating with 4G. In this scenario, every component of the network (from radio base station to the core) is 5G. This aspect makes it possible to avoid the so-called “bottlenecks”.
The new model of 5G SA allows to take full advantage of the performance promised by 5G, that is lower latency, higher speed, reliability and the possibility to implement more efficient services thanks to the support of massive machine type communications (Internet of Things).
The 5G SA finds full application in the use cases of Industry 4.0. The 5th generation of mobile network allows mobile operators to deliver and manage ad-hoc solutions that meet the needs of their enterprise customers, including specific applications for connected workers, sensors’ data monitoring, video surveillance, location and monitoring for Industry 4.0.
From both the mobile operator and enterprise customer side, the service must be intensively and deeply monitored for SLA compliance, security, high performance, network availability, and reliability. Traffic categorization, network KPIs, real-time data analysis, and troubleshooting tools are critical to the success of 5G SA matching customer expectations.
