5G and beyond: Hybrid networks are here to stay
July 17, 2019
Virtualization, digital transformation and 5G are taking us on a path towards hybrid networks, in which convergence, integration and coexistence among the different components is more than a way to protect legacy and ensure service continuity. Monolithic and homogeneous networks are no longer capable to address our growing and increasingly diverse connectivity needs. With hybrid networks, evolution to new technologies is not about rip and replace: it is about flexible and dynamic integration and coexistence.
