5G is changing the old architecture in the new world. The success of 5G will depend on a multitude of network functions for both RAN and Core from several vendors to function effectively on the hybrid/multi-cloud platform.
There is a dire need to onboard and certify network functions in an automated way to accelerate deployment, and reduce risks.
This whitepaper presents HCLTech’s recommendations and approach for onboarding 5G network functions and applications onto cloud-native infrastructure.
This document discusses the workflows involved in instantiating the functions and integrating them into the network. This document also briefly discusses HCLTech’s approach to device conformance verification.
