Network management is very important for cloud and Edge. CNF(cloud-native network function) is next-generation VNF. CNF will be supported in Edge computing in the future. It is very important specially in 5G network. A cloud-native 5G network provides the completely digitized platform necessary to deploy new cloud services and to take advantage of cloud-native 5G benefits like massive IoT, edge computing, and network slicing. Cloud Native Network Functions will ultimately help operators pivot from Non-standlone (NSA) 5G architecture which depends on a 4G core network to operate, to standalone (SA) 5G. Standalone 5G pairs 5G radios with a cloud-native 5G core network. We would like to build a demo network based on K8S.
Goal for this Hackweek
- prepare environment for CNF demo
- build K8s cloud
- build a demo of the CNF
- Change source code and document
