Prices are estimates only and are not intended as actual price quotes. Actual pricing may vary depending on the type of agreement entered with Microsoft, date of purchase, and the currency exchange rate. Prices are calculated based on US dollars and converted using London closing spot rates that are captured in the two business days prior to the last business day of the previous month end. If the two business days prior to the end of the month autumn on a bank holiday in major markets, the rate setting day is generally the day immediately preceding the two business days. This rate applies to all transactions during the forthcoming month. Sign in to the Azure pricing calculator to see pricing based on your current programme/offer with Microsoft.

Pricing details

Azure Private 5G Core (AP5GC) offers simple, scalable, and secure deployment of private 5G core networks on an Azure Arc–managed edge platform. Deploy and connect 4G or 5G standalone radios for coverage, procure and provision SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) profiles, and connect devices all available from our ecosystem partners. The service is launched from the available cloud region to manage multiple private 5G networks across global enterprise edge sites.

Service charge is based on the amount of time the service is provisioned and available for the selected package. For technical specifications and limitations of AP5GC, please refer to the Azure Private 5G Core documentation | Microsoft Docs. Certain capabilities may require the use of additional Azure services which are charged separately. AP5GC requires the deployment of Azure Stack Edge (ASE) Pro with GPU. See Pricing - Azure Stack Edge | Microsoft Azure.
