Swedish vendor Enea has announced the development of what it called an ‘innovative end-to-end automated deployment solution with 5G Standalone (SA) Core’, under a project led by Norway’s Telenor which included the participation of ‘ten world-class vendors’.

According to Enea, the solution substantially accelerates the deployment time of a network slice from days to minutes, increasing the deployment speed by 70%. It added that the unique multi-vendor approach led by Telenor involved key network functions from Enea (Stratum Network Data Layer, Subscription Manager), as well as Oracle and Casa Systems. According to the vendor, the purpose of the solution is to both reduce deployment time and to allow enterprises to order 5G network services dynamically and have a proven path to on-board their own application services via standard APIs.

As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, work on the project has been ongoing for the last two years, with Enea confirming its involvement back in May 2021.
