ETSI NFV Telco Cloud Executive Roundtable #Copenhagen 2023

ETSI NFV has played a critical role in mobile operators' 4G/5G deployment, more than 70% of the 4G and 5G core network are deployed based on ETSI NFV specifications. ETSI NFV is the right place for Telco operators to bridge the CT carrier-grade requirements with the IT evolutionary cloud native practices. Without correct understanding of the telecom operator's heritage, simply reusing IT/open source solutions will lead to unstable services and unpredictable performance.

The Telco Cloud executive roundtable is hosted during the plenary meeting of NFV#43, where high-level representatives from operators, manufacturers, cloud stakeholders are invited to discuss the future evolution of Telco cloud-native and promote the unified ecosystem path for multi-SDOs, open sources and hyperscalers.

Date: Monday, September 18th, 2023, 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Location: Royal Conference Center, Center Blvd. 4, 2300 København, Copenhagen, Denmark
