FusionLayer Sets Stage for Innovative NaaS Use Cases

By Greg Tavarez

The introduction of 5G is a booming opportunity for the telecom industry to experience big revenue growth. That is what everyone thought, anyways. Telecom companies are not seeing the immediate revenue growth they expected. As a result, they are looking at other emerging technologies, particularly different Network-as-a-Service use cases, to make up for the lack of growth.

Private 5G and virtual Radio Access Networks are NaaS use cases that are gaining momentum. With both being deployed at the edge clouds, the low-latency connectivity they add on top of the edge clouds establishes a stable platform for advanced NaaS use cases with the potential for new revenue streams.

To accommodate the emerging edge cloud and NaaS use-cases such as private 5G and vRAN, FusionLayer unveiled the new FusionLayer Infinity 3 series.

FusionLayer collates network information into a single source of truth that is accessed securely by engineers and automation to eliminate the chance of network downtime. This is important because it provides customers with real-time information that ensures networks run reliably without manual mistakes that lead to network downtime – on-premise, at the edge and in the public cloud.

“As emerging use cases like private 5G and vRAN are being ramped up, it seems that mobility will be driving the first wave of the edge cloud adoption,” said Juha Holkkola, CEO at FusionLayer. “Moving forward, we think this will enable various Networks-as-a-Service business models that will become the ultimate 5G revenue drivers.”

With FusionLayer Infinity's scalable solution architecture, an individual instance manages up to 100,000 subnets, 6,000 overlapping private network spaces, millions of overlapping IP addresses, dozens of overlapping VLAN spaces and more than 10 orchestrators responsible for different service platforms

When network data is managed within a unified system, secure access to the data is gained through a developer-friendly REST API.

“The network and the IP assignment processes are the cornerstones of network instantiation and service activation,” said Holkkola. “With the latest FusionLayer Infinity 3 series, we are bringing NaaS to a whole new level.”

FusionLayer Infinity 3 series is run in production by select telecom companies in Asia Pacific and Europe. The general availability of the solution is set for late January. Once available, qualified customers can obtain proof-of-concept and production versions of the solution.
