Solution Benefits

A 5G Fronthaul network using seamless MPLS segment routing offers several advantages:

  • Low Latency: 5G networks require ultra-low latency to support real-time applications such as autonomous vehicles, remote surgery, and virtual reality. ACX7000 Cloud Metro routers assure an ultra-low latency forwarding while SR-MPLS provides an optimized latency based path forwarding in the network eliminating the need for complex protocol processing.
  • Scalability: The 5G network infrastructure needs to support a massive number of devices and provide seamless connectivity.SR-MPLS enables network scalability by simplifying the forwarding plane and reducing the control plane complexity. This allows for efficient resource utilization and optimized network performance.
  • Traffic Engineering: SR-MPLS provides advanced traffic engineering capabilities, enabling operators to dynamically control and optimize the flow of traffic. This allows for efficient load balancing, congestion avoidance, and quality of service (QoS) management, which are essential for delivering high-performance 5G services.
  • Network Resiliency: 5G networks require high availability and resiliency to ensure uninterrupted service. SR-MPLS offers fast rerouting mechanisms and supports protection and restoration schemes, allowing the network to quickly recover from failures and maintain service continuity.
  • Simplified Operations: SR-MPLS simplifies network operations by leveraging source routing. Instead of maintaining complex routing tables at every network node, the forwarding path is explicitly encoded in the packet header. This simplifies network configuration, reduces control plane overhead, and improves overall operational efficiency.
