The fifth generation of wireless cellular communications, “5G” continues to power ahead in 2021 with multiple 5G networks now deployed around the world. 5G wireless technology significantly differs from previous generations, as the entire wireless cellular network has been re-architected to use new capabilities such as software-defined networking (SDN), network function virtualization (NFV) for new services, and cloud-native architectures for scalability.
Primal has been on the leading edge building out its architecture to encapsulate Primal OSE modules in containers to be deployed with the Kubernetes container orchestration system. Technologies such as containers play a big part in the evolution and integration of 5G networks reducing latency and access at the edge. Such capabilities to operate at the core and easily scale is in line with the 5G principles.
Parmjit Randhawa, Primal Technologies’ Director of Engineering indicates “5G networks are beginning to touch every facet of human life from entertainment, work, personal and social activities. As the Telecoms of the world push toward being more “5G” compliant, Primal Technologies is ready to assist with the deployment.” Primal’s use of Kubernetes is on solid ground with the first commercial deployment set for 1st quarter 2021. With Kubernetes and a 100% IP based OSE telecom solution Primal has been demonstrating remote installs within weeks and the capability to scale proportionately to subscriber growth. With Kubernetes enablement Primal Technologies supports a range of low-latency, high-bandwidth services to integrate into the evolving networks of tomorrow.
