- BT recognised at event in the Netherlands for collaborative work on converged 5G technology.
BT and 5G solutions provider Casa Systems were recognised at the Broadband World Forum event held in the Netherlands in October 2019 for their collaborative work on developing 5G converged core technology.
The partners won the Best New 5G Technology award for their proof‑of‑concept work, which is focused on simplifying network design and supports video and enterprise virtual private network services by combining the wireless user-plane with the 5G core. The core and wireline broadband network gateway functions are enabled by Casa’s Axyom software platform, which runs on off-the-shelf hardware to provide a disaggregated, virtualised solution at the network edge. The two originally demonstrated the solution at Mobile World Congress in Spain, in February 2019.
