The networking industry is pushing the pace of 5G development. Service providers, and other organizations in the enterprise and public sector, must then determine how best to support their current or planned mobile broadband and IoT/MTC services while providing a path to 5G. The evolution of today’s network core will be central to this transformation. In this webinar, Heavy Reading’s Gabriel Brown, along with representatives from Nokia, will discuss the proposed 5G NGC functional architectures being proposed in 3GPP standards. It will identify why a ‘cloud-native’ packet core architecture is a requirement not only for future 5G services, but for existing or planned 4G mobile broadband and IoT/MTC services as well.
