Building the Cloud Native Telco

Architecture for Hyper-Scale CSPs

Netflix pioneered the defining case study model for a ‘Cloud Native’ approach to enterprise technology.

Now industries like telecommunications are seeking to replicate the same cutting edge approach of microservices software architecture and hyper-scale computing, to replicate the platform for high velocity digital innovation and global service delivery it enables: The Cloud Native Telco.

Our case studies of pioneers like Vodafone, Orange and Rakutan demonstrate how each is approaching it with different objectives including operational cost efficiency, accelerated software development or digital ecosystem enablement, all achievable from the same common model.

Through documentation of technical standards from key industry experts like the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and a roundup of vendor capabilities, our guide offers a blueprint for CSPs to define and implement their own Cloud Native Telco strategy.


AWS is expanding into the telecomms market via a multi-pronged strategy encompassing direct services and partner solutions.
