The telecom industry is undergoing a dramatic shift in the transition to 5G. Physical infrastructure that had been the mainstay of the telecom industry is transitioning to an enterprise IT infrastructure that is distributed, cloud-based and enabled by orchestration and automation capabilities.
Processes such as network monitoring, moving data around the network, and day-to-day network operations are all being impacted. Being able to scale sufficiently and rapidly is essential, as is working through a distributed architecture and providing full lifecycle management for current and future 5G requirements.
Since not all operators are ready for a cloud-native solution, it is important that they are presented with diverse deployment options across hardware, software and virtualization. This is critical to many operators’ journeys, because environments will run in parallel and in many cases on the same embedded infrastructure, for the foreseeable future.
Cloud-native applications are not designed to run in traditional infrastructures. They require a higher degree of service discovery, programmability, automation, observability, robust network communications, security and openness.
As more CSPs begin to scale out their operations, the need for tiered data architectures with data pipelines increases. These data pipelines allow for lower latency, higher throughput, and real time information distribution in distributed systems, such as those functions found at the edge of the network.
Telecom Industry’s First Cloud Native InterGENerational Platform
NetNumber TITAN.IUM is the next generation of the widely deployed TITAN Multi-protocol Centralized Signaling and Routing Platform. It is an InterGENerational platform that aligns to CSP network and service evolution from 2G and 3G, through to 4G. It is also the home for NetNumber 5G applications and perfectly aligned for our customers’ journey’s to becoming cloud native.
