Mobile operators around the globe are beginning to launch 5G networks and migrate to the nextgeneration of network services. 5G provides operators with an opportunity to substantially transform their network and embrace a cloud-native architecture. Because many of the network services that operators will be delivering are cloudbased, this will require them to evolve and become more open and agile.
In late summer 2020 Mobile World Live conducted an online survey of mobile and fixedline network operators, mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) and hardware and software companies to understand the timeline for evolving to a cloudnative network architecture, the role the cloud-native architecture plays in deploying both nonstandalone and standalone 5G, and some of the challenges operators believe they face when moving to a cloudnative network.
The survey confirmed the significance that cloudnative architecture plays in the 5G strategies of respondents and also revealed how important this technology is to operating an efficient network.
