Simplify, scale, and secure your 5G migration from the core to the edge.
Service providers must ensure that their new 5G infrastructure is interoperable with existing 4G networks. This will require the implementation of a secure, cloud-native, and service-based architecture from core to edge that can operate at scale.
How F5 Can Help
F5 gives you the tools to begin the transition to 5G today. We help you scale, optimize, and secure your current network to meet 5G’s latency, high-throughput, and increased traffic demands. Scale and simplify your existing networks while migrating to 5G with high-performance, virtualized solutions.
Service providers need to maximize legacy LTE network components (Diameter, GTP, SIP signaling) as they implement new 5G HTTP2 signaling. F5 helps you preserve 4G functionality, providing charging assurance while 5G standards and solutions solidify.
Let F5 minimize 5G migration complexity by optimizing the consolidation of your N6 interface as you transition from 4G. With our simplified architecture, ease of scale, and wide range of network functions, F5 is your trusted partner, helping you enable new services in real time.
With the introduction of SDN/NFV, networks are moving away from monolithic, full stack deployments to a best-of-breed selection. 5G requires cloud-native service-based architecture. F5 offers service providers a transition path from PNF, VNF to CNFs.
