The Future of Telco Must Be Cloud Native

Supercharge Competitive Capabilities. Maximize 5G Investments.

Next Section

Cloud Native Is More Than Just a Nice to Have. It’s a Must Have.

Maximizing the value of 5G investments will demand an entirely new way of thinking about infrastructure and software applications.

Agile icon

Better Agility

Micro-offerings. Hyper-segmentation. 5G will create unprecedented pressure to quickly spin-up and tear down new offers and services, on-demand.

elasticity icon

Greater Elasticity

New device types. New sensor capabilities. The ever-increasing diversity of IoT will redefine what a device is and what will be required to monetize it.

Scalability icon

Massive Scalability

More. Faster. Repeat. 5G will see massive increases in network volume and throughput that will demand new automation capabilities.


With 5G, Cloud Natives Will Thrive While Cloud Tourists Will Struggle

“What does cloud native really mean? Why should I care? These are questions service providers should be asking, particularly in the age of 5G, as cloud native is a new best-practice essential to the successful launch of the latest wave of services.”

Cloud Native Architecture Unlocks 5G Opportunity

More than just a deployment methodology, cloud native architectures are an entirely new way of building agility, elasticity and resilience into telco solutions.


Stand up and test new services quickly


Scale existing applications dynamically


Ensure uptime and handle workload gracefully

Monolithic approaches to technology will not meet the needs for 5G services. Only cloud native solutions can manage the potential of operators’ 5G investments.

Private Cloud. Public Cloud. New Possibilities.

Cloud native architectures can deliver regardless of how you choose to deploy.

Ease of scaling and seamless upgrades

Isolating and harnessing functions as autonomous microservices makes it possible to adapt, upgrade and/or scale in ways that monolithic architectures cannot.

Automate service management

Using containers to package and orchestrate microservices introduces automation, including self-healing and recovery, reducing overhead from dynamic scaling functions.

Combine infrastructure platforms

Adopting an agile, cost-effective and dynamic common code base supports flexible, scalable deployment models across private, public or hybrid cloud environments.


Going Cloud Native for 5G, IoT and Beyond

Service providers are embracing cloud native applications not just because they want to, but because they have to. Why is cloud native so important?

Hardware Abstraction

Reduce costs, improve commercial flexibility and enable operation at near infinite scale by allowing applications to run in any private, public or hybrid hardware/cloud platform.


Start lightweight services quickly. Move faster. Deploy software efficiently with microservices packaged through a framework, facilitating management and control of resources.


Automate resource allocation through independent scaling, self-healing and auto-upgrading. Simplify service deployment and management as services are broken into specific functions.


Faster cycles and response times. Application development and deployment streamlined and automated, leading to agile practices and optimized build, test and release of software.
