For CSPs, the increase in network costs combined with near-flat revenue from connectivity services results in a critical business requirement to explore opportunities beyond traditional services.
A more open, automated network is necessary to break legacy vendor lock-in while promoting innovation for new use cases in the era of 5G mobile networking. The network evolution from an architecture of distinct, dedicated appliances to a modern, cloud-native, microservices architecture provides a realistic opportunity to change the operational and economic model for CSPs.
CSPs have an opportunity now to apply deep telecom domain insights into a webscale platform that is optimized for RAN, 5G, and other network function workloads.
