5G core on hybrid cloud

Create profitable opportunities with hyperscalers


5G and its cloud native architecture is being deployed faster than any previous mobile generation, bringing new consumer experiences and helping enterprises shift to Industry 4.0, including edge cloud partnerships for enterprises. To realize these capabilities, yesterday’s monolithic, static core must become a 5G standalone core that is disaggregated and dynamic.

Deploying the cloud native 5G standalone core (5GC) on multicloud opens broader ecosystem innovation, enables continuous software updates, and allows rapid scaling for on-demand responsiveness – all supported by greater resiliency and security. CSPs can benefit by deploying their core onto a hyperscaler’s cloud, taking advantage of its infrastructure, ecosystem and partnerships.

What can be the 5G cloud?

Nokia 5G Core’s cloud native architecture can be deployed on public cloud and hybrid cloud, giving you all the freedom and flexibility your business demands. Source the vendors you choose for the services you need and create an ideal environment for new and profitable service development, including edge cloud for enterprise partnerships.

Our cloud native architecture is deployed on Nokia Container Services, RedHat OpenShift and VMware Tanzu, plus Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Microsoft Azure.

What is a public cloud used for? What is a hybrid cloud used for?

CSPs can deploy their network on a hyperscaler’s public or hybrid cloud. However, it must be designed for performance and scale of real-time applications, including at the edge. CSPs can use any cloud to address their business imperatives:

  • Automating lifecycle management, for operations that are more responsive & less expensive

  • Partnering with hyperscalers to pursue new business with edge cloud, analytics, enterprises & industries

  • Launching new applications & services, right now, while later optimizing traffic and costs

  • Serving a new customer, who has an uncertain trajectory, bypassing private cloud’s CapEx with public cloud’s OpEx

Our customers’ cloud-native hyperscaler deployments

CSPs are deploying our cloud native 5G core onto public cloud and hybrid cloud. Dive into our customers’ case studies to learn how they did it, and see what comes next:

  • DISH Wireless USA with Amazon Web Services (AWS). It is the world’s first CSP to deploy and operate a 5G Standalone Core on a hyperscaler’s cloud.

  • Telenet Belgium with Google Anthos. It empowers Telenet to develop its own telco cloud infrastructure with much less complexity.
