5G and edge opportunities bring operators the potential for enormous revenue growth. However, as they look to leverage the immense potential of 5G and edge applications, to improve profitability and market share, they must ensure that their network services are delivered seamlessly – faster, automated, at low cost on a larger scale than ever before.
This naturally drives the need for the adoption of highly automated, cloud-native architectures through the software containerization of network functions (NFs) for both 5G connectivity and services. Additionally, they must run alongside existing legacy NFs running as Virtual Machines (VMs) and all these services must be supported by an automated deployment and orchestration platform, reducing the number of steps it takes to manage their many lifecycle events.
It is important to note that we are focusing on more than just the 5G network itself. As we have learned several times over, it is not just about connectivity, as there are substantial revenue gains to be had by way of Over The Top (OTT) services. Furthermore, many of these new services are becoming network-aware, driving the need for new platforms that support 5G connectivity and services in a shared, secure environment. A solution for simultaneous efficiency that eradicates operation silos is necessary for success - and we have just the approach with Symcloud™, recognized as a “platform leader” in Edge Cloud.
