Enhanced automation and service orchestration, where manual procedures can be replaced by automated zero-touch deployments, are central to the appeal of cloud-native infrastructures and cloud-native network functions (CNFs) for communication service providers.

CNFs are the software applications that implement network functionality and are designed to run in the cloud – they typically consist of one or more microservices deployed in containers.

This case study shows how microservices and containerisation enabled the adoption of a continuous integration, continuous testing, and continuous delivery (CI/CT/CD) approach to software development and network management. The ability to build, test, and deploy microservices independently enabled faster development cycles, shortened time to market and reduced the risk and impact of human error.
