The Cloud-native computing is transforming the way we are thinking about developing, deploying and managing applications in networking industry (5G, MEC, etc.).

What is the role of ONAP in new Cloud-native computing world?

ONAP acts as central network-service orchestrator addressing life cycle management of network function based services. ONAP deploys and manages VNF and PNF workloads across multiple sites today and will evolve to manage future services that will include additional CNF components.

As the Industry moves to the Cloud Native, the purpose of this panel is to share how we can bring together the best of the two worlds, ONAP and Cloud Native, by identifying central orchestrator role, ONAP applicability, gaps and to define the path forward.
