Telecoms Europe 2021 – Intergenerational 5G solutions - more than just cloud native, by Netnumber

Intergenerational 5G solutions - more than just cloud native

By Patrik Rokyta, VP, Systems Architecture, Netnumber

There is no doubt that 5G is the road to the future but there are still many intergenerational networks like 2G, 3G, 4G & LTE in service that are functional and delivering on their promise.  So how do you manage the transition from legacy to new, from known and trusted technologies to a new paradigm? Patrik will show how this is achieved through a dramatic shift from the traditional physical infrastructure to an enterprise IT network infrastructure that is distributed, cloud-based and enabled by orchestration capabilities. Currently, not all operators are ready for cloud-native but as more move to this model they will be faced with the transition from old to new. This session will discuss the unique needs that 5G and all the intergenerational versions of mobility bring to modern, cloud native solutions.  This session will go beyond just discussing scale, data synchronization, automation and cloud native efficiencies. It will detail an intergenerational and integrated approach to how operators can best optimise their subscriber data, global data and put their interactive data to work, via analytics. In addition, it will discuss the partnership journey between vendors and operators through integrated delivery, test, and deployment, across all of the mobility generations.
