Ericsson has been selected by SoftBank to deliver cloud native 5G Core for SoftBank’s 5G standalone network, Ericsson said in a statement.
The solution, which includes Cloud Packet Core, Cloud Unified Data Management and Policy, as well as Ericsson NFVI, will be used in SoftBank’s operational transformation, according to Ericsson.
Ericsson’s dual-mode 5G Core provides SoftBank with capabilities to develop new 5G use cases.
Ericsson and SoftBank have an existing relationship. In May 2019, Ericsson was selected by SoftBank as its primary 5G radio access network (RAN) vendor.
