While network functions virtualization (NFV) achieved 3GPP-defined control and user plane separation and is the choice for most mobile core deployments this year, the industry understands its limitations. Cloud native is the frontier, because it will drive digital transformation, enable greater operational flexibility, and reduce Capex and Opex while accelerating innovation and the monetization of the resulting services.
Cloud Native creates new requirements for software focused on easier developer consumption, network latency, visibility, security, sustainability, and TCO in addition to the main network connectivity KPI, performance.
Join Chandresh Ruparel, senior director, and Eoin Walsh, senior architect, from Intel’s Wireless Core Network Division for a view into the challenges and opportunities with cloud native in the 5G core
