Virtualized Routers Enable Service Agility and Efficiency

The benefits of using disaggregated routers over traditional routers is the ability to skirt around vendor lock-in, thus increasing versatility and flexibility. Adopting disaggregated routers will help service providers lower CAPEX costs and reduce power consumption while giving them the ability to scale up both network capacity and service scope quickly.

Facilitated by the ease of deployment and operation of disaggregated routers, this emerging disaggregated ecosystem promises to give beneficiaries the versatility, capabilities, cost-effectiveness, and scope to develop and deploy effective 5G RAN solutions to meet the needs of the world of tomorrow.
