Orange is present in 27 countries and it is challenged by its non-homogenous network function virtualisation (NFV) infrastructure implementations. It used the ZTE 5G standalone core trial to further its knowledge about virtual network function (VNF) integrations and on-boarding in order to understand the challenges, particularly when faced with non-homogenous NFVI platforms.
This case study provides:
- An overview of Orange's growth challenges
- An overview of Orange's business challenges and key drivers related to 5G networks
- An analysis of why operators such as Orange are pursuing virtualisation
- The reason why Orange's 5G standalone core deployments may be hampered
