Building cost-efficient cloud-native 5G SA networks: a TCO comparison

Microsoft has collaborated with Analysys Mason, to analyse the TCO of deploying a cloud-native 5G SA network using a PCP cloud solution based on Azure Operator Nexus compared with using a DIY private cloud model. The TCO model considers greenfield deployment scenarios for the cloud native 5G SA core in consumer macro networks, modelled for two hypothetical Tier-1 operator profiles.

Microsoft has collaborated with Analysys Mason, to analyse the TCO of deploying a cloud-native 5G SA network using a PCP cloud solution based on Azure Operator Nexus compared with using a DIY private cloud model.

The TCO model considers greenfield deployment scenarios for the cloud native 5G SA core in consumer macro networks, modelled for two hypothetical Tier-1 operator profiles. In this report, we discuss the key findings of how

  • The TCO of on-premises Azure Operator Nexus deployments is 38% lower than that for DIY deployments

  • Operators can further optimize cloud-native network TCO by using Azure Operator Nexus hybrid cloud architecture
