BT and Oracle to accelerate delivery of new 5G services in the UK

Oracle | September 23, 2021

BT Group—the UK's largest mobile and broadband provider—has selected Oracle Communications Cloud Native Converged Policy Management to optimize its network resources and bring new 5G offerings to market faster. The solution will enable BT to quickly and seamlessly test and implement 5G services—such as live streaming and zero-rated 5G content—across its EE mobile network.

Oracle Communications Cloud Native Converged Policy Management makes it easier for network engineers to design, test and deploy new services across both 4G and 5G networks. Oracle's easy-to-use policy design engine will enable BT to test and quickly implement new 5G service plans and experiences, such as live streaming and augmented reality (AR), reducing testing and implementation time to a matter of minutes, instead of months. Oracle's policy management will also give BT the flexibility to optimize network and subscriber resources to launch 5G-enabled Internet of Things (IoT) service offerings to consumer and enterprise customers.

Leveraging Oracle's built-in analytics function and support for edge-routing, BT will be able to make intelligent policy decisions using subscriber, class of service, quality of services (QoS) and network resource data in real-time to deliver the best, most reliable experience for customers.

BT Group, and EE in particular, have a long-standing, successful track record with Oracle.As we move to this next evolution in networking, Oracle is helping us reduce complexity with solutions that ease the migration to 5G and provide the flexibility needed both to introduce innovative new services, and also ensure we're offering our customers the right levels of service according to their needs. Working with Oracle further supports our ambitions towards delivering a mobile network that continues to exceed customer expectations.

Howard Watson, Chief Technology Officer, BT.

BT chose Oracle Communications for this initiative based on Oracle's decades of network infrastructure and security expertise in multivendor networks worldwide.

Providing a reliable and unified customer experience during the 4G to 5G migration process is essential for ensuring long-term market uptake of 5G services.Oracle provides a best-in-class converged policy solution that leverages the cloud native technologies needed to successfully deploy the next generation mobile network in the UK.
