LG U+ Deploys First Carrier-Grade NFV Router in Korea to Prepare for 5G
To prepare for 5G and next-generation mobile services, LG U+ knew a Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)-based solution using virtual routers was the best path forward.
LG U+ provides communications services in Korea, including mobile communications; optical, IP, hybrid fiber coaxial network, converged broadcasting, and telecom services. In 2013, LG U+ became the first company in the world to commercialize “100 percent LTE,” doubling the speed of LTE services.
Its scalable NFV infrastructure will enable LG U+ to roll out 5G services quickly and efficiently. The provider reduced operational costs by minimizing reliance on underused, dedicated hardware and dynamically allocating server and memory resources on demand. Now LG U+ can deploy a new virtual router with just a few mouse-clicks.
