Will 5G Break the Cloud?

Will 5G Break the Cloud

As 5G emerges from initial coverage deployments into adolescence, the urgency to identify new revenue opportunities has intensified. Gaming, AR/VR, video content and security surveillance headline an array of hot prospects under consideration. Delivering the performance and latency to power these next-gen services will require 5G to fully embrace its cloud architecture and will also place unprecedented demands on an array of telco, public/private and edge clouds.

Join Justin van der Lande, Applications Research Director for Analysys Mason's Telecoms Software and Networks Group; Aloke Tusnial, Vice President of Cloud Solutions for Spirent; and Stephen Douglas, Head of Market Strategy for Spirent, as they explore the complex intersection of 5G and cloud technologies and answer the question: Will 5G break the cloud?

This Light Reading webinar covers:

  • How performance and latency requirements for new 5G services will stress telco, public/private and edge clouds

  • What it means for 5G to go cloud-native and the major testing headaches it brings

  • Why visibility across different types of clouds is so critical for 5G and what failure to address it could mean

  • How the move to edge services exacerbates this visibility challenge

  • New test and assurance techniques and CICD practices to improve visibility and ensure the cloud delivers the performance 5G needs
