5GC deployment on AWS Cloud
The trend of deploying core network on cloud has been promoting recently.
What are the advantages of implementing “core network + public cloud” for operators and enterprises?
1. Develop business rapidly at a low CAPEX with pay-as-you-go model
2. Deploy core network in easy SaaS service model
3. Provide multiple and customized services for clients.
Together with AWS, now we have successfully deployed the private 5G networks on AWS for our customers. Our solution enables “Click-to-deploy” millions of networks in every home, building, office, factory, island, village or hamlet.
To better address diverse requirements of network requested by different types of operators and enterprises according to their size, IPLOOK provides three ways of 5GC deployed on the AWS Cloud: centralized deployment, distributed deployment and multiple sites deployment as below figure:
