Vodafone brings 5G technology to the LTE network

4G Network Slicing

While the 5G expansion is underway, Vodafone is also bringing network slicing to the LTE network. Customers in business and industry should have a reliable connection at all times.

The expansion of 5G is progressing steadily and promises higher speeds and capacities in mobile communications. These are also necessary because the ongoing networking and digitization in industry and business is also increasing the hunger for data.

Network slicing is used in the 5G network to ensure sufficient capacity for important applications at all times. A piece (“slice”) of the network is cut out and reserved for a specific application. This is intended to ensure that sufficient network capacity is available for important applications, even in high-load situations.

However, 5G is not yet available across the board. In addition, many end devices in business are not yet compatible with 5G standalone, so they have not been able to benefit from the technology so far.

Vodafone now wants to change that and is also introducing network slicing in the 4G network. “As a digitization partner for business and industry, it is part of our job to develop solutions for the future. But solutions for the present are at least as important. […] That is why we have made the 5G technology network slicing 4G-compatible – and thus enable our business customers nationwide to have particularly reliable networks where they are needed,” explains Alexander Saul, Managing Director Corporate Customers, Vodafone Germany.

Vodafone corporate customers can take out “network insurance” via Vodafone Business Campus Flex Exclusive Reserve. This should ensure that the necessary network capacity is available at all times for the respective applications. According to Vodafone, areas of application include industry, logistics, transport and the media.
