5G Operational Readiness: HPE's Core-to-Edge Network Infrastructure and Operations Management Solution
This IDC Market Note provides IDC's perspective on the HPE 5G Core Stack network-as-a-service and business orchestration solution. It explains how the HPE 5G Core Stack solution, when coupled with a RAN, can provide E2E 5G network solution capabilities.
"Delivering 5G services is not easy and the more it looks easy from the customer's perspective the more complex behind-the-scenes network and operations functions become. End-to-end service orchestration involving 5G with previous technology generations that include both physical and logical components is not a trivial exercise, but it is a realistic service deployment scenario. Industry solutions such as the HPE 5G Core Stack that envelops both network technology and the operations/orchestration functions for addressing this complex conundrum is a win for those dealing with the challenges of day-to-day business and network operations. The growing pains from 5G technology evolution combined with the changes needed to the operations and monetization processes cannot be overstated," says Karl Whitelock, research vice president, Communications Service Provider Operations and Monetization at IDC.
