5G is seemingly all the news, all the focus and all the budget for Mobile Operators. Today's initial 5G deployments are radio solutions that leverage the existing 4G core. These are primarily mmwave point to point backhaul solutions. Accuris Networks customers are leveraging these for improved performance and cost for their Carrier Wi-Fi deployments. Yes, 5G and Wi-Fi co-exist quite nicely. As demand continues to spike within Carrier Wi-Fi networks, end-to-end performance improvements and enhancements are necessary. That said, 5G radio requires interworking with the existing 4G core. Where it gets exciting is when the 5G deployments move to standalone 5G New Radio (5G NR) which entails a 5G core. Interworking becomes even more critical for seamless service capability within the 5G and "legacy" 4G cores. Accuris Networks interworking technology is solving these service requirements today and is ideally positioned to enable 5G NR, specifically enabling and monetizing network slicing.
