In today's digital age, cybersecurity is an ever-increasing concern for organizations worldwide. It's imperative to keep sensitive information safe from cybercriminals - especially as a telecom mobile core network. That's why we're thrilled to announce that Working Group Two has achieved the ISO 27001:2022 certification - a globally recognized standard for information security management systems. This latest accomplishment marks a significant milestone for our organization in ensuring the security of our telco core network and edge sites, protecting our customers' confidential data from any potential threats.

Last year we upgraded from flux v1 to v2, flux v2 being a full rewrite, splitting the single binary into a number of dedicated controllers to improve performance. We installed flux v2 to each of our clusters, and let it run for a while before revisiting it to see what needed tuning, and what improvements could be made.

Many enterprises, telcos, and vendors mention that private and public 4G/5G can be confusing, hard-to-procure, and manage. In many cases, getting started requires a large capital outlay, which organizations may not want to commit to given their unfamiliarity with private cellular technology.

Picture a secluded spot deep in a Norwegian fjord. As you wander past the main farmhouse, you come across a barn. Inside, there are no animals in sight. Instead of hay and manure, you're greeted by the aroma of freshly made hot chocolate. And there, sitting behind a computer, surrounded by screens and a lightning-fast internet connection, is Karl Johan Heimark.

The AWS Snowcone is a small form factor server that was originally meant for data transport to AWS data centers. However it can also be used as a small device running compute workloads. We wanted to evaluate the performance of the Snowcone as it is a quite intriguing piece of technology which we might want to use as a an on-premise UPF (User Plane Function) in low-throughput 5G networks (think IoT or Proof of Concept deployments).

If that headline was slightly incomprehensible to you, it means that we鈥檝e now made it possible to call pretty much anyone from a 5G-enabled handset that is connected to the Working Group Two 5G core via a 5G antenna. To be clear, we鈥檙e not talking about making a 鈥渇irst鈥 Voice over New Radio (VoNR) call (those took place way back in 2021), but about making VoNR calls from a set of major commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) 5G devices to other mobile and fixed handsets.

Our big belief is that the telecom industry should start building global platforms with the aim of achieving network effects - like many of the adjacent industries in devices and apps. To enable this, we鈥檙e building a mobile core from the ground up, running it in the public cloud and offering it as-a-service globally. To make it even harder (and fun) for ourselves, we鈥檙e also developing a full, API-based global product ecosystem to give telecom operators new revenue and differentiation opportunities.

One of the questions we get from operators is how to distribute products to their subscribers. There are multiple ways to go about it, but in this post, we'll show how an operator can enable products for their subscribers in what we call bundling.
