The edge is undergoing a massive transformation to support innovative emerging 5G use cases and services. The advanced platforms required will support not only virtual network functions (VNFs), but also cloud-native applications and services. Platforms that integrate VNFs & services become indispensable as we architect edge solutions that can scale and flex seamlessly while also keeping TCO low. Hear from Ericsson on their collaboration with Intel to integrate OpenNESS microservices into their edge platform that will provide service capabilities for enterprise use cases at the network edge.
