5G and Network Slicing: Hybrid Clouds with Silver Linings

Microsoft’s Shawn Hakl discusses how 5G’s inherently cloud-friendly architecture excels opportunities to skyrocket the efficiency and effectiveness of the network with finely tailored network slices—including private 5G networks and hybrid clouds with private mobile edge compute solutions.

In this Executives at the Edge episode, host Pascal Menezes explores these topics and more with Shawn Hakl of Microsoft:

  • What does 5G have to offer carrier, service provider, and developer communities and how can it bring the power of the cloud to the core network?
  • What are the characteristics of a modern network and where does automation come into play? 
  • How does network slicing allow service providers to tailor the network around end-user applications?
  • How are oil rigs, airports, smart factories, connected cars, and many other applications, poised to leverage the power of 5G?
  • Can organizations who need to accommodate public access on a private network, or private compute in locations without good connectivity or cloud access, really have it all? And how?
