"Most vendors agree that standardisation is needed for cloud-native automation but each category of vendor has a different level of support for Nephio, depending on the level of threat and/or opportunity that it presents to them."


Nephio faces challenges with winning the support of vendors for its open-source, Kubernetes-based cloud-native automation initiative. Network function providers, cloud infrastructure vendors and OSS/orchestration vendors should assess how they can benefit from Nephio and how they can help communications service providers (CSPs) to achieve their cloud-native ambitions.

This report analyses the level of vendor support for Nephio and identifies key vendor motivations and challenges.
