Ready to get real about NFV and 5G?

NFV is here and now, but how to make it commercially ready? Will the promise of an agile network at lower cost come true? And what does it take to capture the benefits of today, while preparing for the upcoming opportunities in 5G and IoT?

At Ericsson we will showcase:

The new Ericsson Edge NFVI solution for edge computing, that fits well with our main NFVI & Orchestration solutions and 5G platform.

Orchestration in key aspects of 5G such as VNF onboarding & LCM, NFVI LCM and network slices Operational transformation when moving to telco cloud. This is key, and a challenge. Hear our insights from leading operators.

The cloud native 5G Core which is now starting to be deployed. See the live demo with efficient CI/CD capabilities.
