Affirmed Networks' 5G-ready IoT Solution also supports advanced capabilities related to network slicing and Control and User Plane Separation (CUPS) architecture. Network slicing allows mobile operators to offer customized services by customer, industry or vertical segment over a single virtualized network. The CUPS architecture enables operators to separate the core network, allowing for centralized and distributed deployments.
An open, standards-compliant solution, the Affirmed Networks IoT Solution is interoperable with a wide array of third-party solutions, thus ensuring choice and flexibility for operators as the market evolves. The platform provides mobile operators with essential functionality in the areas of analytics, billing, security, application enablement and device management that are required for delivering profitable IoT services. Through a partnership with Tech Mahindra, the solution also contains enterprise domain expertise and capabilities for connecting devices to the critical information and applications residing within the enterprise.
"Virtualized networks provide operators with an efficient and cost effective way of delivering IoT connectivity," said Angela Whiteford, Affirmed Network's vice president of product management and marketing. "We are now adding service delivery capabilities and support for emerging access standards that are part of an end-to-end solution enabling mobile operators to manage all aspects of a profitable IoT service."
"Successful IoT strategies will need to encompass both network connectivity and service enablement capabilities," said Karthikeyan Natarajan, Global Head- Integrated Engineering Services, Tech Mahindra. "With virtualized network architectures now having emerged as the preferred connectivity solution for high-value IoT services, we have partnered with Affirmed Networks, a company who has successfully deployed virtual network solutions for some of the world's largest mobile operators. Our combined focus will leverage both the NFV network and service enablement capabilities to provide operators with a solution that enables them to deliver IoT services profitably."
