White paper on cloud transformation and 5G towards full automation

Telia Company and VMware have published a technical white paper for the industry on the transformation journey towards full automation and a 5G-ready cloud infrastructure.

These days 5G and cloud transformation are on the top of the agenda in most advanced telco service providers. They are connected and important enablers and catalysts for a deep transformational journey that is essential for renewal of the networks to remain competitive in the future market landscape and to stay relevant for customers.

In the white paper, the authors from Telia Company and VMware reflect on the technological aspects related to the evolution of the cloud infrastructure to become 5G ready and invite the readers to review and challenge some of underlying assumptions used by the telco industry to build and consume their infrastructure.

“This paper addresses the next level of the end-to-end architecture in terms of requirements we see emerging for the infra layer, especially for the upcoming new generation of services and 5G. This attitude to review and challenge traditional schemes and way of doing is certainly essential for our New Generation Telco journey and in fact any transformation journey,” says Mauro Costa, Director of Networks and Infra, Telia Company.

The purpose of the paper is also to help drive a constructive dialogue between carriers, vendors and the various platform communities, ultimately facilitating an effective delivery of the expectations 5G is currently creating.
