Optimization of network resource allocation and network functions (NF) placement in a dynamically changing environment – like a mobile network – is a major challenge. Yet to implement a 5G network successfully, it has a significant role to play.

In the 5G era, the need to guarantee QoS based on network slicing makes optimizing NF placement more important than ever.

This webinar explores the challenges and implications of dynamic NF placement:

·       Current industry trends around NF placement

·       Role of NF placement in guaranteeing QoS in 5G networks

·       Challenges and how they can be addressed

·       Why a new dynamic and optimized approach is necessary

·       What CSPs can do today to start their journey towards autonomous NF placement

As a network, IT or business strategy decision maker or influencer, join us to learn why dynamic NF placement is essential to successful 5G.
