5G doesn't just bring new radio-to-service providers, it ushers in an ecosystem opportunity that has the potential to radically change CSP business models. With newly open network platforms, open ecosystems, a move to software-centric networks, and new B2B use cases, CSPs need to defragment their carrier network domains. This leads to two important discussions: how end-to-end automation will manage this new approach, and how the network platform elements are deployed in any cloud.

Topics Covered
  • How the convergence of technologies around 5G coupled with service provider business aspects requires a discussion of two topics: Core Automation and Any-cloud

  • Forward-looking view of automation implementations (and machine learning) on communication networks

  • The strong impact of webscale cloud infrastructure on carrier networks and what it means to vendors like Nokia
