Dr. Oguz Sunay, Chief Architect for M-CORD, ON.Lab

The promise of 5G connectivity is a truly Networked Society. 5G is not just about making the throughput larger, it is also about offering use case optimized user experiences and inclusion of new vertical sectors. Use cases predicted for 2020 will need new types of connectivity services that are highly scalable and programmable in terms of speed, capacity, security, reliability, availability, latency and impact on battery type. 5G will need to be an agile, dynamically programmable network that can meet diverse needs with new, as-a-service models on a single infrastructure. In this Webinar, you will learn how the Open Networking Foundation is combining open source and software defined standards through its Open innovation Pipeline to advance innovative architectures such as mobile CORD (M-CORD). M-CORD is being developed by the CORD Project community under ONF's leadership and hosted by The Linux Foundation. Built on the pillars of SDN, NFV and cloud technologies, the end-to-end M-CORD open reference solution is arming operators with the capabilities needed to start planning for the upcoming 5G transition.

Since its inception in February of this year, the Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) has attracted a community of more than 50 leading suppliers and global carriers, who support more than 55% of the world's mobile subscribers. ONAP, which is hosted by the Linux Foundation, was designed as an end-to-end framework for real-time, policy-driven automation of physical and virtual network functions. It not only unifies the telecom sector, but also provides it with a viable roadmap for network orchestration and automation well into the future.
