Erlend Prestgard, CEO and co-founder, Working Group Two

Working Group Two (WG2) was spun out of Telenor in 2017. Its mission was to rebuild the mobile core network from the ground up, and the key to this was cloud native. CEO and co-founder Erlend Prestgard explains why you can't just take a traditional core network and put it on the public cloud, and why you need to build a mobile core from within the cloud - in a fully cloud-native manner. He discusses the role of programmability and enabling third-party innovation via APIs, and talks about the many challenges that this new approach brings and how WG2 has overcome them.
