In the last two years, there has been a lot of talk about "cloud native" in the telecom industry. Vendors have been competing about cloud-native messaging and Communication Service Providers (CSPs) have requested cloud-native stories from vendors as part of their procurement processes. At the same time, there has been a great level of uncertainty regarding definitions, implementation details, and operational changes beyond high-level buzz words such as microservices, containers, and stateless design.
With 5G just around the corner, many communications service providers worldwide have already laid out 5G network launch plans. However, while the industry is busy accelerating 5G development and deployment, outsiders are still wondering if 5G can deliver on its promises. One of the keys to success may be network programmability.
The number of cellular IoT subscriptions is forecasted to grow to 4.1 billion devices by 2024 (Ericsson Mobility report, Nov. 2018). A significant portion of this growth is expected to be Massive IoT devices that use technologies such as NB-IoT and Cat-M, are low-cost, and have long battery life.
