The Economic Benefits of Juniper Apstra and CN2 in a Modern 5G Network

This paper presents the results of a total cost of ownership analysis on the benefits of the Juniper Apstra data center automation platform and the Juniper cloud-native Contrail Networking SDN in a distributed 5G network. Built upon a Tier 1 operator’s existing and planned deployment, our study analyzed a 5G network with the following network design:

  • Two main DCs for management and orchestration (MANO) clusters and servers
  • Ten central data centers for packet core control planes
  • One hundred edge data centers for 5G user plane functions (UPFs), Open-RAN centralized units, and other edge services

The result of our Apstra and CN2 5G analysis shows OpEx savings of 41%, TCO savings of 23% and return on investment (ROI) of 312%.
