Ericsson and OPPO are making a breakthrough in slicing 5G networks

Ericsson, Oppo and Qualcomm have successfully tested 5G network slicing for the enterprise network on a commercially available smartphone, paving the way for the technology to be rolled out more widely.

Operators view network slicing as one of the biggest revenue opportunities for standalone 5G (5G SA) networks that use a fully virtualized cloud-based backbone and effectively allow them to segment specific parts of the network for specific applications.
