To “5G Standalone”, or to “Non-Standalone” (NSA)? 5G Core is the connecting tissue that enables scalability, interoperability, and slicing of 5G networks. It is also where the software-defined nature of 5G is controlled and where key operational aspects are determined.  Operational processes need to be considered and evaluated versus new frameworks such as service-based architecture (SbA) and containerization, and enhanced to reap new benefits with end-to-end automations.

In this series of FierceMarkets webinars sponsored by HPE and Intel, we will examine the challenges and promises of operating in a software-defined core network.


This series includes 3 webinars:


5G Capacity Planning - Sizing in a Cloud Native Environment

Recorded on September 30, 2019 

This webinar discusses the use of known queueing theories and steady state modelling to understand the capacity of each microservice, thus being able to determine the capacity of a 5G network function.

5G Orchestration and Automation toward Zero Touch Service Management
Recorded on October 10, 2019

This webinar will explore business usages and opportunities that call for adoption of more automatic network operations, and will examine design best practices to support them.

5G Integration and Operations in a Multi-Vendor, Container-Based Architecture
