Gabriel Brown, Principal Analyst - Wireless Data Services & LTE, Heavy Reading

Matthias Reiss, Head of Subscriber Data Management Business Line, Nokia

The initial steps for implementing Telco Cloud, such as the virtualization of the network functions, have definitely delivered improvements to network operations and end-user services. However, to realize the economic benefits of new and demanding services, the industry needs to take steps to leverage the full potential of cloud computing on telco applications. This will be enabled by applying cloud-native principles to service provider networks and software design.

In this session, Nokia will outline its vision for the evolution of the Core Networks towards a cloud-native architecture. We will cover the changes required on the network architecture, software design and network operations to build a cloud-native environment. In particular, we will also cover how the relationship between CSPs and vendors will have to evolve to enable the agility required by today's consumers and enterprises. Some topics to be covered:

  • Cloud-native principles applied to telecom
  • Application of a DevOps environment

Key Questions Answered

  • Why we need a cloud-native core
  • What it needs to do (key principles)
  • What it looks like
  • The main challenges

Please join Matthias Reiss, Nokia Head of Subscriber Data Management and Gabriel Brown, Principal Analyst, Heavy Reading, to discuss the evolution to cloud-native core networks.

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
