Starting today, Ericsson is publishing a series of five articles describing “Cloud-Optimized Network Applications”. The articles are examining the topic both from business and technical perspectives and what the implications are for operators as they evolve towards 5G.
The introduction of 5G brings many new opportunities. Network slices and cloud-optimized network applications, using cloud native design principles, and with a high degree of automation and resource orchestration support operators in capturing these opportunities while handling diverse requirements.
Cloud-optimized network applications are developed specifically for deployment in distributed cloud environments while delivering 5G service characteristics.
