5G and Cloud Native - The IT-ification of Telecommunications

Download Report

Report Summary:

As Communications Service Providers (CSPs) wrestle to make their networks agile, scalable and cost effective for Next Generation Networking they are turning to IT for new approaches that will allow them to offer web scale services with upgrades in days not months.

Although some Enterprise and Cloud IT tools may need modification for CSP network performance and reliability they provide a solid foundation for Telco digital transformation.

These tools will be essential to accelerate and manage deployment of 5G Service Based Architecture (SBA) as the network evolves to become ‘Cloud Native’ with interoperable microservices in containers.

While the move to ‘Cloud Native’ is disruptive the benefits of scalability and automated virtualization could finally allow the CSPs to ‘kill the scissor curve’ by decreasing TCO per GB faster than Revenue per GB is declining.

This report and the related webinar were sponsored by HPE and Intel.
