At Oracle OpenWorld, Oracle Communications will host a series of conference sessions and panel discussions about transitioning to the digital world, the evolution to 5G, innovative monetization strategies, and addressing fraud and security concerns. Additionally, we will feature customer speakers from BT, Teleena, HSBC, Chegg and Intuit, to name a few.
Below is a quick guide to the Oracle Communications sessions that will help communications and digital service providers better understand digital customers, ecosystems and networks.
Evolution from 4G to 5G
At OOW 2018, Oracle Communications’ subject matter experts and customers will cover every aspect of the 5G evolution — from leveraging a 4G network for “5G-like” capabilities, to the actual construction of a 5G core, to monetization of 5G, integration of 5G into cloud, and securing the ever-blurring borders between the two.
The common thread in all of these 5G discussions will be the different options available for introducing 5G into operations, namely constructing a path from 4G to a full 5G core. What are the iterative steps that will take operators from where they are today to where they want to be, providing a 5G “experience” using an existing 4G network in the journey to a complete 5G core?
Learn how standards like option 3 NSA (non-standalone architecture) will help operators leverage 4G networks, and how different flavors of option 3 (i.e., 3A and 3X) will make use of LTE base stations.
Also on speakers’ agendas will be discussions about the role of the Evolved Packet Core (EPC), as with the 4G EPC network over which services are often deployed today. See how to avoid making the EPC network an “overstuffed” one-size-fits-all network that becomes very difficult to manage.
Naturally these conversations will trigger debate about the viability of network slicing over a 4G core and whether CSPs can effectively offload their EPC through separate overlay cores and utilization of 3GPP’s network slicing Dedicated Core Network (DECOR).
