5G networks will provide high data rates, lower end-to-end latency, massive device connectivity, reduced cost and consistent user quality of experience provisioning. These networks and enabling technologies are expected to transform the way we live and work. 5G is about services such as Internet of Things (IoT) and machine to machine (M2M). 5G network architectures such as Cloud Radio Access Networks (C-RAN) and technologies like Software Defined Networking (SDN), and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are main parts of a 5G network. Key Performance Indicators (KPI) with reference to QoS and QoE will be the main performance measurement factors.
Our 5G migration service follows a 3-step approach. Predicated by a scope definition workshop, the service offering starts with an assessment phase where applications & infrastructure are assessed to be 5G ready and categorised based on the ease of migration to 5G. This phase is followed by a 5G Foundation Services build based on provided 5G requirements followed by the migration phase where the applications are migrated to the destination network by either a “lift & shift” model or by re-platforming, refactoring or complete recoding.
