You’re driving an ambulance at 75 miles/hour, trying to get your critical patient to the hospital. But you can’t. Do you know why? Because there are a hundred cars ahead of you haphazardly trying to move with no lanes or clear direction in sight.
This situation is like multiple applications competing for the available network bandwidth. In the advanced network world, this logjam situation is referred to as a Non-Guaranteed Bit Rate (NBR).
How to prevent non-guaranteed bit rate on your advanced network?
A central organization – think of something like the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) – registers and records all the vehicles in your state. The data helps the state, and the city planners forecast the city’s future infrastructure needs. This approach also holds in the world of advanced network deployments.
Enterprises worldwide are rapidly adopting private LTE/5G/Wifi-6 networks to take advantage of faster bandwidth, lower latency, higher connection density, and several other benefits. But just because your enterprise rolled out private 5G, you can’t throw every application onto the network and expect it all to work seamlessly.
At Shabodi, we believe that a central network application registration and repository like a DMV allows enterprises to have visibility into all the applications on the network and analyze their network usage. These analytics help advanced network administrators proactively address network congestion and provide priority treatment for mission critical applications. 5G Architecture delivers the foundation for such an analytics framework with Network Data Analytics Function (NWDAF).
The stage is already set.
