Netmore selects Affirmed Networks as supplier of Virtualized Core networks that support rapid growth in private 5G networks
Netmore Group’s UK subsidiary (Netmore IoT Solutions Ltd) is taking a major step towards enabling the next generation of private mobile networks. We have selected Affirmed Networks new modern core network technology to be based in UK.
The core is the “controlling brain” of a mobile network and the Affirmed Networks core has a fully modern and highly flexible software architecture that is well suited to the new world of private 5G mobile networks.
Virtualization is the next step in mobile network progress allowing much more flexible, customer-driven – and ultimately lower cost – operations than have ever been possible before. This is achieved by putting more functions into flexible cloud-based software instead of proprietary hardware (i.e. electronics). Adopting this data centre inspired approach, in contrast to traditional big telco systems, enables much easier creation of new networks, services and customer solutions.
We evaluated many vendors and found that the new modern design and structure from Affirmed Networks clearly outperformed the alternatives. Netmore’s UK CEO, Stefan Stanislawski, commented:
“After almost a year spent finding and evaluating in detail many 5G NSA cores, we found Affirmed Networks to be the best for our modern business model. As CEO I was reassured to see that Affirmed Networks software is already used by AT&T, Vodafone, Orange and others and the company was recently acquired by Microsoft, so I believe that it has a stable base for future development.”
Netmore´s first operative Affirmed Networks core will be in UK to serve the private 5G network delivering augmented reality experiences for visitors to Sherwood Forest from next year. The new virtualized approach provides an excellent foundation for growth across the Group’s operations in the UK, Sweden & Germany.
“For our customers in UK this means that we can now accelerate our private mobile deployment and as a next step bring the 5G offer to Germany. I look forward to the Swedish telecom regulator following the forerunners in Europe by allocating frequencies for private 5G networks for industries and properties.” says Erik Hallberg, CEO Netmore Group AB.
