Yesterday's networks focused on delivering voice and broadband services to people. Yet the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the deployment of 5G requires your networks to support a much wider range of services under far more stringent performance criteria.
The one-size-fits-all architecture of networks must change. The Nokia 5G Future X architecture covers all areas of network transformation design, including the core network. This means evolving to a cloud-native core that can be flexibly deployed across a distributed cloud infrastructure, thereby simplifying end-to-end scalability, providing service agility, shortening time to market and providing cost efficiency gains.
Here, we look at the technologies and components of cloud-native core networks and explore the benefits for operators and their customers.

It is clear from the first Nokia 5G Maturity Index that operators have plenty of ambition for 5G. However, most acknowledge they are uncertain about the actions they must take to achieve their goals.
