PANEL: 5G CORE - BUILDING AN OPEN, MULTI-VENDOR ECOSYSTEM
When we think of open architecture, we are naturally inclined to think about Open RAN. However, work is underway to develop and deploy open, cloud-native core network functions. This movement aims to develop packet core technologies across any access wireless networks operating on licensed, unlicensed and shared spectrum. Organizations such as TIP have been working on open standards with success. While we have seen limited deployments of VNFs, Open RAN has proven successful, will an open core ecosystem become a reality (or even a necessity) for CSPs? What are the key benefits and drivers behind open core infrastructure?
