Optus trials Cloud-based mobile packet core technology

It will help address network congestion and mobile service during peak periods

Telecommunications service provider, Optus, is trialling a Cloud-based mobile packet core technology to address network congestion and mobile service during peak periods.

It has partnered with mobile virtual infrastructure vendor, Connectem, and it aims to deploy network capacity to address short, intense spikes in network traffic.

In a statement, Optus said the technology has the potential to deliver a higher level of network performance for customers during peak usage periods.

Optus Networks managing director, Günther Ottendorfer, said as the company continues to expand its Optus 4G across the country, it is also exploring the opportunities within Cloud services.

“The trial is a world-first, and is one of the ideas that we are fostering as a solution to network congestion during major events,” he said.

“At the same time, we are gaining valuable insight into how the deployment of flexible network infrastructure may fit into our long-term network strategy to deliver even more benefits to our customers.”
