Uruguayan state-owned telecoms operator Antel is working with VMware for a use case driven trial using the VMware Telco Cloud Platform to support a Proof of Concept (PoC) for its planned commercial 5G Standalone (5G SA) network. VMware’s horizontal multi cloud platform will help Antel gain operational efficiencies and bring services and innovation to market faster. It will allow the operator to deploy new network functions on the same Telco Cloud architecture from core to RAN to edge, enabling the scale and agility needed to deliver services on the 5G network.

‘To help with the rollout of 5G networks, VMware offers service providers a single platform to modernise their network infrastructure efficiently and cost effectively,’ said Sanjay Uppal, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Service Provider and Edge at VMware, adding: ‘VMware is proud to be an existing partner of Antel, and we look forward to helping them successfully trial the VMware Telco Cloud Platform.’
