Abstract

Technology modernization is one of the core strategic initiatives by chief technology officers (CTOs) and chief information officers (CIOs) to apply innovative technologies. Telecom and media providers are disrupted every few years by market shifting innovations. To compete, they need to develop and monetize on new services before they lose their competitive advantage.

Telco companies need rapid tools that allow them to move to the cloud and embrace the cloud ecosystems. Container technologies have revolutionized the way infrastructure is deployed and have become the standard for modernizing the next generation of applications using a combination of agile, DevOps, and microservices methodologies.

Telco transformation requires a virtualized and containerized Telco cloud architecture to modernize legacy networks. Container technologies act as the key enabler to meet the needs of cloud native applications. This whitepaper outlines major use cases, provides a reference architecture, and outlines best practices of hybrid cloud strategy for deploying telecom edge workloads using Red Hat OpenShift on AWS, using AWS Wavelength and Local Zones.
