How do you get it right? Business advantages and technical implications. 5G enables a wide range of new services, from support of massive media distribution to remote operation of machines and smart metering. This will result in very diverse requirements on the network. Characteristics such as latency, resilience, availability, performance, throughput and security will look very different depending on the type of service. Network slices with cloud-optimized applications and a very high degree of automation and resource orchestration are key capabilities to handle many requirements, and for 5G service delivery. During this webinar, Ericsson will present its view on cloud-optimized network applications and important related business and technology topics. These include the business values for service providers; 5G cloud data layer; and design principles for cloud-optimized network applications, including cloud native and automation.
