5G brings with it a tremendous promise but also new requirements. Cloud native technologies can be used to meet several of these demands by providing benefits in the areas of flexibility, scalability, performance, and resilience. To prove that a 5G cloud native approach can work and to identify new requirements, the LF Networking community created a proof-of-concept (PoC) powered solely by CNFs running on K8s. This effort demonstrates the power of an open source community approach when applied to integration and interoperability efforts. The diverse group of participating companies built and showcased a demo in just a few short months, something no individual company would have attempted or achieved on their own. The demo was unveiled during a keynote at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2019 in San Diego to 8K live attendees. Read this solution brief to learn this PoC came together and join us as we continue to push the frontiers of 5G Cloud Native.
