5G networks are being built using container-based architectures, and in particular Kubernetes, bringing many benefits to service providers. However, experience with Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) has shown that we should not consider Cloud-Native Network Functions (CNFs) as just another virtualisation technology.

To benefit from cloud-native techniques, service providers must get to grips with a range of unfamiliar operations. This session will highlight the key changes that need to be considered when moving to CNFs. 

We will discuss:

The advantages of moving to a GitOps model

The importance of changing the "source of truth" for new deployments

How standard Kubernetes patterns can be used in telco use cases
