Nephio: Cloud Native Network Automation
Nephio’s goal is to deliver carrier-grade, simple, open, Kubernetes-based cloud native intent automation and common automation templates that materially simplify the deployment and management of multi-vendor cloud infrastructure and network functions across large scale edge deployments. Nephio enables faster onboarding of network functions to production including provisioning of underlying cloud infrastructure with a true cloud native approach, and reduces costs of adoption of cloud and network infrastructure.
Benefits of Kubernetes Based Cloud Native Automation
An open, simple, widely adopted Kubernetes based cloud native automation that enables multi-vendor support, faster onboarding, easier lifecycle management, embedded control-loop, active reconciliation and service assurance — reducing cost by efficiency and agility.
A common cloud-based automation framework based on well-proven Kubernetes technology minimizes the levels of custom automation solutions needed for each application. Kubernetes based automation enables faster development with known technology and assures network functions will deploy and run reliably on top of the Cloud.
Network Function Vendors
A Kubernetes based cloud native automation enables easier multi-vendor integration with cloud providers, makes Network Function onboarding to cloud easier and improves the overall customer experience with simple and reliably integrated cloud native automation.
