Cloud Native is happening now

Cloud Native for telecom applications is happening now. In the next few years all telecom applications will be cloud natively designed so as to increase efficiency and utilization of the cloud infrastructure.

Take full advantage of the cloud to:

  • Improve granularity and increase speed of software upgrades and releases
  • Automate through embedded features in the NFVI layer (cloud infrastructure for NFV)
  • Adapt software architecture to make much better use of cloud data center resources

When it comes to 5G, the new 3GPP standardized 5G Core functions will be cloud native and container based. This will start during 2019.

At Ericsson, we have created a set of principles especially made for telecom applications based on microservices, containers and state optimized design.

We will also evolve the NFVI for containers and add orchestration capabilities.
