To “5G Standalone”, or to “Non-Standalone” (NSA)? 5G Core is the connecting tissue that enables scalability, interoperability, and slicing of 5G networks. It is also where the software-defined nature of 5G is controlled and where key operational aspects are determined. Operational processes need to be considered and evaluated versus new frameworks such as service-based architecture (SbA) and containerization, and enhanced to reap new benefits with end-to-end automations.
Join us this fall, as HPE and Intel sponsor a series of FierceMarkets webinars that will focus on the operational aspects of 5G core, and examine the challenges and promises of operating in a software-defined environment.

5G Capacity Planning - Sizing in a Cloud Native Environment
September 30, 2019 | 8 a.m. PDT / 5 p.m. CET / 9:30 p.m. IST There are many advantages to developing and deploying a containerized 5G network function with common microservices, however finding a methodology to model the capacity of a 5G network function comprised of multiple containerized microservices can be tricky. In this webinar, with HPE’s Rob Heldenbrand, Sue Rudd from Strategy Analytics and Declan O’Boyle from Intel Network and Custom Logic Group, we will discuss the use of known queueing theories and steady state modelling to understand the capacity of each microservice, thus being able to determine the capacity of a 5G network function.
5G Orchestration and Automation toward Zero Touch Service Management October 10, 2019 | 8 a.m. PDT / 5 p.m. CET / 9:30 p.m. IST Among the promises of 5G is it being software driven, and therefore more flexible for automations. With automations, carriers can not only gain cost and agility benefits, but shall also be able to offer more adjustable and responsive communication services to their customers and subscribers. This webinar, with HPE’s Uwe Pecis, Sue Rudd of Strategy Analytics and Alex Vul from Intel Datacenter Solutions Group, will explore business usages and opportunities that call for adoption of more automatic network operations and will examine design best practices to support them.
5G Integration and Operations in a Multi-Vendor, Container-Based Architecture November 7, 2019 | 8 a.m. PDT / 5 p.m. CET / 9:30 p.m. IST Running of Cloud-Native 5G is different from previous generation networks. Adoption of containerization, micro-services and CI/CD practices have direct impact on OSS and MANO models, systems and processes. In addition, the openness of 5G architecture, call for inclusion of more vendors, systems and open-source elements in the both user and control planes. In this webinar, with HPE’s Swaminathan Venkataraman (Swami), Sue Rudd from Strategy Analytics and Petar Torre from Intel Datacenter Group Sales, we will examine design principles and practices to support running of Cloud-Native 5G.
