Network access specialist, Ekinops has successfully run its first 5G connectivity tests for business users with Orange Business Services in their Orange Labs environment.
For these tests, Ekinops used its 5G capable OneAccess router based on OneOS6, the user-friendly modular software that enables a range of built-in services for greater modularity. OneOS6 is capable of supporting network functions, such as routing, firewall, SD-WAN and SBC (session border control), among others. It provides a common operating system for both physical and virtual products.
OneOS6 modular software enables a range of built-in services to be activated remotely and on-demand, and uses standard industry protocols to ensures no vendor lock-in.
This successful test was done in anticipation of enterprise 5G connectivity needing to leverage the power of 5G networks. There are many applications for large and small enterprise sites, such as connectivity where wireline is not available or as a backup to a wireline solution with fiber-like bandwidth.
