Antel Testing VMware Telco Cloud Platform for 5G Architecture

By Stefania Viscusi January 30, 2023

Uruguay-based mobile operator Antel has announced it is now working with VMware on a use-case driven trial of the VMware Telco Cloud Platform to support a Proof of Concept (PoC). The goal is a commercial 5G network that will support the growing demands of the consumer and enterprise customers in Uruguay.

Today, 5G is offering the opportunity for communications service providers (CoSPs) to develop new business models and partner with other providers to create more relevant services. This is achieved by modernizing their legacy networks with virtualized and containerized telco cloud architecture.

Antel has a history of implementing emerging technology, and this PoC with VMware will help in their journey to enabling a commercial 5G network in Latin America.

 With VMware’s horizontal multi-cloud platform for their implementations of 5G networks in South America, CoSPs will gain operational efficiencies, bringing services and innovation to market faster. New network functions will be deployed on the same Telco Cloud architecture from core to RAN to edge for scalability and agility.

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