MWC 2019: VMware Says Telcos Must Move 5G Infrastructure into the Cloud to Stay Ahead

VMware made many announcements at MWC 2019 and they all centred around one common theme: network virtualization.

"If a telco wants to progress in the future, they need to think software-defined. More and more communication service providers (CSPs) are turning to VMware to lead their transformation ahead of 5G rollout."
- Gabriele di Piazza, VP products & solutions for telco, VMware.

Traditional data center models will be a thing of the past and phones will transmit to masts and that data will be sent to the cloud, where the network is managed virtually in a SlaaS configuration - we're noticing a pattern here.

VMware calls it a 'telco cloud' which will exist alongside the traditional public, private, hybrid and edge clouds. The network function virtualisation (NFV) platform on its telco cloud will enable better management of a network and improved efficiency of services.

Features and applications can be applied to the cloud environment such as machine learning-driven technology that can spot issues and vulnerabilities and automatically patch them without having to physically attend a data center and make a repair.
