The 5G network is designed to support a broad range of services, with its service-based architecture promising greater flexibility and programmability. A modern software architecture based on agile development, micro-service decomposition, shared data services and automated management can simplify network operations and deliver value faster to end customers.

In this FierceMarkets webinar sponsored by Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Intel, John O’Connell, Chief Technologist from HPE, Sue Rudd of Strategy Analytics, and Dana Nehama of Intel, will explore how the adoption of IT and cloud concepts will enable the creation of agile and flexible open networks, and will discuss how a cloud-native approach, leveraging micro-service design, DevOps concepts and container virtualization, can deliver that promise.

Topics to be highlighted in this webinar include:
  • IT and cloud technologies in 5G
  • Cloud-native design principles
  • 5G application and data management
  • Evolution of NFV to support container-based workloads
  • Live Q&A
