Virtualisation brought many benefits to telco networks, but Open Source Cloud Native technologies bring a real ability to scale, along with new capabilities. So when it comes to 5G, telcos should be taking learnings from the cloud vendors because the Open Source approach has principles and methodologies that help with scalability and cost control, while agility will be enhanced if network software updates can be increased from quarterly or monthly to weekly or even daily. This will enable telcos to bring new services to market that no-one has even thought about before.
