Why automation is mission critical for the new 5G core

Oracle Communications Webinar at Mobile World Live Theme Week

The fabric of the network has changed in fundamental ways, and that change is accelerating. While networks still have boxes and cables, the nature of those boxes, and the control systems and apps running them, are changing to software. Edge compute and low latency services will require automation for rapid redistribution of network elements in both real-time and long term. As competition, customers, and technology, the three existential drivers propelling 5G connections, are becoming increasingly aligned they are poised to accelerate automation and innovation.

Operators who want to remain competitive in the marketplace, will be challenged with securing and updating their networks, and bringing in more software, virtual, and cloud technologies to gradually phase out legacy infrastructure and siloed operations.

Join us in this session as we discuss why the automation of business functions, services and network operations needs to be a mission-critical directive today and how, Operators can leverage automation to rapidly mature and scale software to maximize the speed and agility of 5G deployment and operations.
