"The cloud-native software development and deployment landscape will change over time as communications service providers become software-capable and the industry shifts."

5G networks, operational systems and digital services will be cloud-native, which will require a radical change in the architecture used. The development and deployment of cloud-native software is sufficiently complex that vendors will maintain control of the container-as-a-service (CaaS)/platform-as-a-service (PaaS) layers of their systems for the majority of their operator customers for the foreseeable future.

This report answers the following questions.

  • How do vendors compare with each other in terms of their cloud-native design capabilities, co-creation and customisation capabilities, ecosystem participation, level of CSP support and delivery models?
  • What are the opportunities for vendors within the new cloud-native software stack?
