About this talk

Communication Service Providers (CSPs) are faced with vast business opportunities to support their enterprise customers’ digitalization journey. The high bandwidth and low latency demanding applications increasingly sought after by industry verticals like healthcare, retail and manufacturing will benefit from the cloud native and distributed architecture of 5G technology to thrive at the service provider edge. OpenNESS (Open Network Edge Services Software) is an open source distribution software toolkit that enables highly optimized and performance edge platforms to onboard and manage applications and network functions with cloud-like agility across any type of network, accelerating 5G Network and On-Premise Edge solution development. Ericsson Cloud Container Distribution (CCD) is a Kubernetes based, CNCF certified, telco optimized and workload agnostic CaaS offering validated with Ericsson cloud-native network functions. With the endeavor to support CSPs in their efforts to develop new revenue streams while at the same time streamlining their end-customers' operations, Intel and Ericsson run a technical collaboration that enables support in CCD of a set of microservices from OpenNESS, that in turn allows CCD to on-board cloud-native applications within a solution defined by the OpenNESS toolkit.
