Ericsson and SK Telecom Demonstrate 5G Network Slicing Technology

November 6, 2015

Ericsson and SK Telecom announced a successful demonstration of 5G network slicing technology.

Held at SK Telecom's corporate R&D center in Bundang, South Korea, the demonstration featured the creation of virtual network slices optimized for services including super multi-view and augmented reality/virtual reality, massive Internet of Things offerings and enterprise solutions.

With network slicing, a single physical network can be partitioned into multiple virtual networks to offer optimal support for different types of services for different types of customer segments. By using logical instead of physical resources, it enables operators to provide networks on an as-a-service basis, which enhances operational efficiency while reducing time-to-market for new services.
