About this talk

As telecommunication service providers (SPs) transform their networks, the underlying platform must support both 4G and 5G workloads. Diverse service requirements and increasing demand drive the need for a dual-mode cloud-native 5G core network, where VNFs and CNFs will need to coexist for service providers to provide seamless connectivity. In this session, we will discuss the challenges SPs face creating a 4G/5G core platform, and how the use of reference architectures and other tools aid in the management of dual-core features, functions and services needed for the deployment, operation and delivery of 5G services.
