ON DEMAND WEBINAR: Cloud-Native Networks Have Arrived – The InterGENerational Future of Your Network
Communications Service Providers and Telecom Operators are going through the burden of upgrading their networks and services to 5G.
At the same time, they are considering how to maintain existing 3G and 4G networks, while dealing with the complexities of migrating legacy network monitoring and management to IT-based software-defined infrastructures.
As these infrastructures are virtual and soon-to-be cloud-native they can:
- Leverage multiple container-based functions.
- Scale sufficiently and rapidly
- Work as a Distributed Architecture
- Provide Lifecycle Management for current and future 5G requirements.
Join Steve Legge, COO, NetNumber and Sue Rudd, Director Network & Service Platforms at Strategy Analytics for this interactive webinar, to delve into the Cloud-Native future of networks.
