5G, From Connectivity Pipe To Network As A Platform

Presented by

Ruth Brown, Principal Analyst – Mobile Networks & 5G, Heavy Reading

About this talk

(sponsored by Red Hat, originally broadcast by Light Reading on April 11, 2023) Overview: sponsored by Communication service providers (CSPs) are changing the landscape of 5G networks as they continue to push the boundaries with new technologies and services. From containers to multi-access edge computing (MEC), to private 5G and more, these organizations are chasing innovative ways to deliver value in new ways. The traditional telco cloud has evolved. 5G cannot be underutilized as yet another connectivity pipe. Instead, it must be leveraged as a vehicle to transform networks of connectivity pipes into highly flexible services on a network-as-a-platform. This will help CSPs leverage the full potential of 5G and 5G Advanced Service Based Architecture (SBA) to enable AI-to-AI communication, instant service creation, monetizable automated decision making, etc. Learn how peers and leaders in the telco industry created network-as-a-platform models– discussing their migration to multi-tenant cloud-native converged core platforms; unified core; messaging; application services with Service Based Architecture (SBA) and Service Based Interface (SBI) multi-cloud autonomous operations; network slicing; and 3GPP-based AI/ML enablement. 5G pipe to network-as-a-platform discussion topics: NFV journey with 4G LTE: what to apply to 5G cloud-native transformation Converged 4G/5G telco cloud platform: the do’s and don’ts Modernized Edge-to-Core Network: Considerations for unified architecture vision 5G network-as-a-platform: Leverage the vision and monetize Speakers: Ruth Brown, Principal Analyst – Mobile Networks & 5G, Heavy Reading Shujar Mufti, Senior Manager, Global Partners Solution Architecture Telecommunications, Media & Entertainment, and Edge, Red Hat Brandon Larson, SVP, GM, AI and Cloud Platforms, Mavenir
