Cloud-native Network Edge Industrialization Platform
Network Equipment providers (NEPs) & Telecom Service providers (TSP) have been making significant investments in building transformational software and infrastructure required to efficiently roll-out 5G networks that are quintessential in enabling the intelligent connected world. They gear up to deploy the 5G networks that meet the unique demands of various applications such as industrial IoT, autonomous vehicles, robotics, drones, AR/VR and multimedia. While 5G adopts cloud-native architecture to bring web-scale and agility, it also requires transformation of the network edge to meet the ultra-low latency and high throughput needs of these applications. Adoption of distributed compute at the mobile edge allows hosting these applications closer to the application consumption zones, and will be key to the success of 5G. As the 5G edge transforms into a miniature hybrid data center the public and private cloud vendors are providing the required infrastructure and orchestration software to the NEPs and TSPs. However, there is a need for comprehensive tool kit that not only helps test and industrialize 5G networks at scale, but also intelligently orchestrate and manage multi-tenant edge applications over such hybrid pool of data center resources, and significantly enhanced the consumer experience. This webinar presents the need and challenges of the distributed Edge in 5G networks, as well as highlight the advantages brought in by TCS' Cloud-native Network Edge Industrialization Platform - a tool kit that helps the industry in accelerating 5G network and services roll-outs on distributed Edge infrastructure based on Intel's x86_64 architecture and OpenNESS software.
