Open Source 5G/Edge Automation Using ONAP


Published on

5G/edge computing will have 10,000+ sites (if not 100,000+), 1,000+ applications, and changes occurring by the minute that will require very fully automated orchestration, management, and monitoring of workloads. This presentation explains how ONAP can address this problem.
