At Swisscom, we are engaged in an ambitious technology and cultural transformation towards cloud-native readiness. We believe it is an essential component to keep on thriving in an increasingly competitive environment, and to further deliver reliable services, while accelerating delivery and improving efficiency. While the CNCF ecosystem is incredibly rich, its applicability to the development and operation of reliable telco service is in its infancy. Hence, in this talk, we want to share our observation from working for the past two years on the deployment of our 5G Core platform: in particular, while Kubernetes allows for full life-cycle automation of telco network functions, we see the need for four improvements areas: (1) independence between network functions and the underlying infrastructure; (2) increasing the maturity of configuration and state management of network functions; (3) some constraints of the 3GPP architecture; and (4) the need for service observability.
