Telco goes cloud-native with open source

Nokia and Red Hat webinar

In order to gain the maximum benefit from cloud transformation, CSPs need to evolve from virtualization of network functions to truly cloud-native design. The end result is better scalability as well as faster innovation and a more rapid response to customer demands.

In our joint Nokia and Red Hat webinar we will discuss:

  • The requirements for cloud-native design
  • The benefits of using open source when moving towards cloud-native design
  • Examples of real-life implementation and use cases
