Red Hat and NEC collaborate on Kubernetes-based 5G adoption
This partnership will allow customers to utilize 5G capabilities across a wide range of use cases, such as 5G core, 5G radio access networks, edge computing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. 

Their new cloud-native network function (CNF) infrastructure will enable service providers to reduce management and operational costs. 

“As 5G becomes central to the competitiveness and viability of service providers, it’s critical that these organizations deploy on a foundation that supports a consistent, reliable and cloud-native strategy,” said Darrell Jordan Smith, senior vice president of Industries and Global Accounts at Red Hat. “We’re pleased to work with NEC to provide this new infrastructure built on Red Hat OpenShift. NEC understands the power of open principles and through this expanded collaboration, service providers will be able to maximize the benefits of 5G use cases in the telecommunications sector and beyond.”
