5G promises exciting advances for Communications Service Providers (CSPs), but the 5G rollout is going to be challenging. CSPs must rapidly build out dense, low-latency edge networks in ways that are affordable, secure, and easily maintainable. CSPs are looking toward open-source, containerbased network infrastructures that meet the 5G latency, reliability, and flexibility requirements while being inexpensive to deploy and maintain. This eBook explores the technologies that will power this next wave of telecommunications.
