Hardware vs Software BNGs – Gaining Competitive Edge for a 5G Future
Internet service providers (ISPs) are faced with the challenge of deploying a cost effective, future-proof broadband network gateway (BNG) to meet the needs of residential and business broadband subscribers. With most of the workforce working remotely, there’s a massive opportunity to not only meet the changing bandwidth requirements for residential subscribers, but also to reimagine the new residential broadband with 5G services layered on top.
A next-gen BNG can help operators gain flexibility and provide an additional breadth of offerings, simplifying broadband service delivery and creating new options for converged services.. In this session, we’ll discuss:
· Trade-offs between hardware and software BNGs
· Benefits of a disaggregated, cloud-native architecture
· Growing revenue with layered services
· Enabling 5G services on fixed broadband and WiFi networks
