Deutsche Telekom (DT) partnered with Ericsson, Nokia, and Qualcomm Technologies on a trial focused on “technical validation of end-to-end multi-vendor slicing”. The lab test, lauded as a “world first”, saw Ericsson and Nokia collaborate with DT on network infrastructure while Qualcomm led the terminal side. DT presented the “successful” test as an endorsement of the feasibility of enterprise 5G network slicing, and in effect its massive 5G infrastructure investment plans.
