SK Telecom widens joint research with Ericsson on 5GSK Telecom announced on Monday that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with Ericsson to collaborate on the development of a core network for 5G services.
A core network is an important part of how data will be transferred in the next generation of wireless connectivity. The two companies will deploy a technology called network slicing when developing the core network.
The collaboration is an extension of an existing partnership in which the two companies are building a test bed for the 5G network in a lab in Bundang, Gyeonggi.
“Virtual network architecture, including network slicing, is critical to supporting new services in the era of 5G,” said Choi Jin-sung, CTO at SK Telecom. “We will build an optimal network for a wide array of services.”
