Equinix has announced it has deployed a first-of-its-kind, fully functional 5G and Edge Technology Development Center which includes a fully operational, non-standalone 5G network from Nokia to test and validate various 5G services and use cases.
Equinix is investing in helping service providers and network operators bring innovative concepts to market by providing an agile production framework for assessing, incubating and testing 5G and Edge solutions for end-to-end secure applications.
The 5G and Edge Technology Development Center brings together select ecosystem participants to develop end-to-end Edge solutions by providing a production-ready interconnection sandbox environment from the radio network to the cloud.
“As we look to a future where 5G is ubiquitous, the way that IP traffic moves between networks around the world will change completely and interconnected data centres will play a crucial role in this new 5G-dominated future,” said Sean Hemphill, VP Webscale Business at Nokia.
Mobile network operators (MNOs), cloud platforms, technology vendors and enterprises come together at Equinix to test, demonstrate and accelerate complex 5G and Edge scenarios – key activities that will make 5G deployments available to enterprises in the future.
