KT Corp has selected Oracle Communications for the 5G Policy Control Function (PCF) in the buildout of its 5G network and to enable new Network as a Service (NaaS) offerings for businesses. An early adopter of 5G, KT Corp is known for innovation and selected Oracle for its overall 5G readiness, product maturity and competitive strengths, including its agile and feature-rich 5G PCF solution.
The 5G PCF is the policy management function of the 5G Control Plane, and one of the 5G Core Network elements delivering Quality of Service and other network policies to communications service providers’ (CSPs) networks. Leveraging Oracle’s 5G Core Network, KT Corp will be able to continue its network transformation toward 5G and will unlock new doors for differentiated and personalized customer offerings, supporting incremental 5G network monetization with improved service agility, increased bandwidth and more customized services.
With the introduction of 5G, CSPs like KT Corp are able to launch and evolve custom-fit network slices faster than ever. Network slicing is a highly dynamic process that provides CSPs with the opportunity to tailor connectivity services to the precise requirements of any given application, user, device or context, by logically isolating virtualized network resources. This capability will enable CSPs to launch NaaS solutions tailored to the specific needs of their enterprise customers that can range from AR and VR to connected cCars, smart factories and smart cities.
