Published on : Monday, December 31, 2018

Ericsson and Panasonic Avionics Corporation declared that Ericsson’s Core Network as a Service solution is now live, supporting connectivity services across multiple markets served by Panasonic.

 

Ericsson’s Core Network as a Service solution will help Panasonic and its subsidiary AeroMobile, a global GSMA telecoms operator, provide data, voice and messaging services to the millions of airline passengers that use these services in-flight.

 

 

The collaboration between Ericsson, Panasonic and Aero Mobile started in 2016. It is now fully operational and delivers services to Panasonic customers worldwide.

 

 

As part of Panasonic’s initiative to bring a superior connected experience onboard commercial aircraft, Panasonic and Ericsson have seamlessly migrated the existing service operating across a global fleet of aircraft onto the core network, delivered as a service, while maintaining network performance and customer experience.

 

 

Every passenger whose mobile service provider has a roaming agreement with AeroMobile can use the service, which is supported by mobile operators across the globe and delivered inflight on board more than 20 of Panasonic’s global commercial airline customers.

 

 

The geo-redundant solution is delivered through Ericsson’s ground-breaking Core Network as a Serviceand includes virtualized network applications such as packet core, unified data management, mediation, and mobile switching delivered on Ericsson Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Infrastructure.

 

 

The core network solution is part of Ericsson’s as a Service offering to service providers globally, and is able to support 5G services to the passenger and airline.

 

 

 

Marielle Lindgren, head of customer Unit UK and Ireland, Ericsson, said that Panasonic Avionics is the first customer on Ericsson’s newly introduced Core Network as a Service solution, which aims to bring Ericsson’s leadership and expertise to a wide range of service providers. We’re proud to have initially been chosen as Panasonic Avionics’ supplier for a 5G-ready core network, and pleased that the project is now live.

 

The two companies will explore other services to address further market segments and opportunities, while ensuring service continuity and the constant evolution of the live network, including exploring new 5G use cases.
