ACTON, Mass. -- Affirmed Networks, the leader in virtualized mobile networks, today revealed the findings of a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analysis by ACG Research that demonstrated the economic advantages that Mobile Network Operators can realize by deploying an integrated, virtual 5G mobile core solution.

The report, Integrated Cloud Core Advantage: A TCO Analysis, provides Mobile Network Operators with an independent financial analysis that compared an integrated 5G virtual Evolved Packet Core solution from Affirmed to a standalone ‘Best of Breed’ multi-vendor solution. In summary, the Affirmed integrated 5G vEPC solution provides a maximum capital expense (CapEx) savings of up to 81% and maximum operations expense (OpEx) savings of over 94%, generally resulting in CapEx savings of 50% and OpEx savings of 87% over 5 years compared to best-of-breed solutions.

"Operators deploying virtualized mobile core solutions are looking to support both 4G and 5G services and applications," said Chris Nicoll, Principal Analyst, ACG Research. "While vendors have responded by providing solutions that are cloud-native, the missing link has been the delivery of a truly integrated solution capable of delivering a high-performance and material savings from a CapEx and OpEx perspective. This study represents an in-depth analysis of the many areas where a truly integrated solution can deliver powerful economic returns when compared to 'best of breed' approaches that have been deployed in the first phases of virtualization."
