Telefonica Germany Deploys 5G Standalone Core to Cloud
O2 Telefonica (Telefonica Germany) has announced today the deployment of 5G Standalone (SA) core software, fully implemented in the Cloud. The telco said it has launched its 5G Cloud Core operations on Amazon Web Services (AWS) with support from Finnish network supplier Nokia. With this rollout, some Telefonica Germany’s 5G SA customers will benefit from cloud advantages, including higher availability, reliability, and faster software upgrades, resulting in an enhanced network experience.

“By building the 5G cloud core network on AWS, O2 Telefonica is redefining its operating model through complete automation and flexibility on a large scale. O2 Telefonica will thus be able to dynamically scale and allocate 5G network capacities to meet customer needs as well as the requirements of the new applications that will run on the new core network,” AWS commented.
