5G represents a fundamental change in communication network architectures that will enable innovative, revenue-generating services. As part of the broader transition to distributed, cloud-native networks, 5G will combine the flexibility and agility of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), the programmability of Software Defined Networking (SDN), and the proximity to users of Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC).
By taking a holistic approach to these important technology transitions, CSPs can begin to realize the 5G vision. But how and where should CSPs start this evolution?
This paper explores the fundamental principles for designing 5G networks and explains why the edge of the network is the logical place to build 5G infrastructure foundations.
