HCL @ MWC LA 2019 | HCL Technologies

Engineering the 5G Ecosystem

We at HCL believe that 5G will be much more than just the next generation of mobile technologies. It represents a fundamental shift in the way businesses and entities will operate in the years to come.

Apart from the advantages in latency and huge increases in speed and bandwidth, 5G will bring about fluidity and last mile connectivity, being the ubiquitous and all-pervasive glue in unifying and solving some of the world's biggest connectivity challenges, across industries.

HCL is participating in MWC Los Angeles 2019 as an Exhibitor Sponsor, to support you in taking your business to the next level. In our quest for “Engineering the 5G Ecosystem”, we invite you to our booth (2651), to witness our latest 5G and connectivity solutions and services.

 

HCL Power Hour

Today, telcos and service providers are under constant pressure to reduce network operation costs and improve network availability, while delivering more and better services. They aspire for AI/ML based network solutions that can collect relevant data from the 5G network infrastructure, so as to enable zero-touch configuration, auto-healing and auto-scaling. The key challenge each player has been facing is to analyze the right data in real time to measure, detect, report, and predict any incidents that may impact the network availability or the user experience in the 5G hybrid network. This is where service providers are expecting next-gen analytics, user experience, and AI/ML technologies to be embedded into devices, equipment and network functions in the telecom network ecosystem.

Designed as a platform for thought leaders to share insights on impacting and improving customers’ connectivity experiences through assured services, we are pleased to partner with GSMA and introduce the HCL Power Hour at MWC LA 2019. The Power Hour will see attendance from telecom experts and key industry luminaries, in a power-packed panel session and more.

Solution Showcase

Cloud Native Function Acceleration
Segment Routing over IPv6 Acceleration using Intel Programmable Card (PAC) in association with Bell Canada. This solution is based on an implementation of SRv6 protocol, which is an emerging technology designed to address the requirements of the new coming NFV/SDN based architecture with the advantage of providing one unified solution for various challenges like network programmability, service function chaining, protocol simplification, traffic engineering, mobile vs fixed convergence. This solution will provide the following main advantages to the Telecom Operator’s virtual installation environments:
  • Greatly improve the data plane throughput while still using open HW platforms
  •  Allow for smooth network upgrade (future-proofness) of new SRv6 features without changing the HW installed base
BluGenie – Network Softwarization Platform
BluGenie enables management of architectural, functional and operational telco cloud requirements in a unified way, solving business/automation challenges of telecom operators and allied industries. It supports and helps in:
  • Realization of a softwarized network service with embedded softwarized network functions
  • Softwarized/virtualized network function lifecycle including development, test and release
  • Network service lifecycle including design, test and deployment using softwarized network functions
  • Reducing the turn-around for deployment of a network service, apart from increasing the automation and customization of network service deployment.
