Through the use of 5G technology, service providers are now able to offer a large variety of applications at the edge from different vendors – giving the same flexibility inside the network that users see today from public cloud providers. Previously, all services were designed and written by a single vendor. To enable this type of flexible environment, it is very important to build an Application Integration architecture that can interconnect containers, virtual machines and bare metal instances of services from different vendors. Join us to learn more about how Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Application Services provide tools that enable this integration.
