The Future of the Cloud Native Networks
A key facet of an agile 5G Network is the fact that it is built on a cloud native architecture that provides key benefits such as flexibility, efficiency, automation and service creation. These benefits are realized due to the distributed nature of the software, associated microservices and the linkages between them. In this panel discussion you will hear from key vendors Mavenir, Intel, HPE and others on how the software and underlying infrastructure work together to provide operators with the agility to create new services for their end customers. In addition, you will learn about the open standards and tools that are available to ease the deployment of cloud native designs while also hearing directly from the participants on the best ways to scale the adoption and meet the growing needs of the network providers.
