Microsoft extends carrier infrastructure offerings through Azure

Microsoft Corporation has reportedly announced an expansive range of carrier infrastructure services through Azure.

These services were announced at the Mobile World Congress organized this week which includes private 5G enterprise networks. This move intends to reinforce the position of the vendor as a collaborator to the telecommunication industry with progressing deployments of edge computing and 5G.

The primary service is Azure for Operators, a characteristic of the Azure cloud services developed to help telecom firms comprehensively manage their core networking, consolidating crucial workloads like core, RAN, and BSS/OSS (business systems support/operations support) management on one software platform.

On the other hand, Azure Operator Distributed Services is a platform of containerization for nearly 60 network functions throughout 15 different equipment vendors. The system is currently operating on the network cloud platform of ATT, which demonstrates the close collaboration between the two companies.

Last year, the telecom major stated that it has migrated its core network operations onto the Azure cloud and declared ahead of MWC that the private 5G services would utilize Azure for edge computing and core management software-matching with the firm’s announcements of an Azure private 5G core and enhanced support for mobile edge computing in the form of public MEC.

Apart from using Microsoft software for its in-house retail network, some part of the move for ATT is to use Azure as a platform to easily provide private 5G as a service.

The intention is to enable customers to purchase coverage of private 5G for a certain area through ATT or Microsoft and enable vendors to simply switch the connectivity by assigning bandwidth out of what is already available to the new customer.

The announcements indicate that the tech giant aims to keep following its plan to use 5G to achieve a comprehensive role in enterprise networking.
