With the Internet of Things (IoT) including massive Machine Type Communications (MTC), the continued growth of mobile broadband and 5G on the horizon, packet core will be required to connect to a greater variety of devices and deliver a broader range of services over wireless and fixed access.

These market and competitive factors place communication service providers (CSPs) at an inflection point from their overall business with regards to their mobile networks and operations. This in particular will drive an evolution in the packet core and next-generation mobile core product, solutions, operations and architectures.

In this webinar, we will discuss packet core/next-generation mobile core considerations in support of IoT/massive MTC and mobile broadband, and we'll show a path to 5G. It will highlight areas that CSPs need to consider, along with the cloud native concepts that need to be employed if CSPs are to profit from these opportunities.
