Insight Research writes for ToolBox: 5GC: The Core, the Container and the Bare Metal

Published on September 23, 2022

In this thought-provoking article, Kaustubha Parkhi, Principal Analyst at Insight Research, provides insights into the future of 5G Core (5GC) deployments. This article, featured on Spiceworks, focuses on key considerations.

5GC's Vital Role in 5G: The article emphasizes the critical role of Standalone (SA) 5G Core, enabling precise service differentiation and quality of service parameters, making it essential for realizing the full potential of 5G technology.

Challenges to SA Adoption: Despite its significance, SA 5G Core adoption faces challenges, including geopolitical factors and telco infrastructure complexities. This article sheds light on the factors contributing to this delay.

Containers vs. Virtual Machines (VMs): The virtualization landscape is evolving, with 5GC becoming a virtualized core. While VMs were initially expected to dominate, containers, driven by Kubernetes, are emerging as powerful contenders. Containers offer flexibility, microservices, and efficiency, making them ideal for network slicing.

The Rise of "Bare Metal": The article explores container deployment methods, emphasizing the trend toward "bare metal" hosting. This approach maximizes container logic's proximity to hardware, streamlining efficiency by eliminating intermediaries.
