The telecoms industry is at an inflection point. Webscale providers like Amazon, Netflix and Facebook have found tremendous success in the industry and are now threatening to overtake telcos as the majority market share holder in the telecoms industry. To preserve and gain market share and prepare for the arrival of 5G networks, CSPs need to invest in modernizing systems in the OSS and BSS domains.

By embracing cloud-native and open source IT, CSPs can gain the agility and scalability needed to support 5G services and business models, while also creating an environment that is prime for innovation, enabling CSPs to compete head-to-head with the webscale players.

This webinar explores the different facets of IT modernization for CSPs in the digital and 5G era with a focus on cloud-native technologies including microservices, open source and DevOps.
