The evolution of Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) infrastructure to support cloud-native applications is gaining traction for both fixed and mobile Communications Service Providers (CSPs). This presents an opportunity to think ahead and re-design the full IT environment to best meet future challenges – in particular being agile with services and scale in an efficient way.

Vendors need to up their game too, to helps their customers on this journey by providing cloud-native applications. This includes Lawful Interception systems, which must evolve to support the cloud-native world.

In this webinar, BAE Systems and Heavy Reading will discuss some of the considerations those designing, delivering and managing the changes should make with respect to regulatory obligations for lawful interception.

Key topics include:

  • Move from cloud to cloud-native
  • How to apply standards in the cloud-native world
  • Thinking and planning about compliance for the long term
  • Best practices that CSPs should consider when implementing LI systems
