Telefonica's core automation strategy

Over the next five years, Telefonica is planning a major overhaul of its core operation, with a brand new cloud-native architecture to address the needs of all the future services that will need to be provided via 5G. It is a big job - legacy services for 2G upwards will also be migrated to this new architecture - but once it is finished it will enable high distribution of data traffic, network slicing, and a culture of fast innovation and easy operation.

To explain exactly how the Spanish operator plans to achieve this, Cayetano Carbajo, Telefonica's Head of Transport, Core and Service platforms, discussed the five-year core evolution strategy with delegates at the Layer123 World Congress, held online in October 2021.
