5G completes the transition to fully virtualized and, in some cases, even cloud-native network functions. While the concept was applied to the previous mobile generation, 5G introduces new deployment flexibility and dynamics.
Being built from the ground up as a set of network functions that can be scaled and combined to serve a wide range of use cases, it opens up the opportunity for Mobile Operators to innovate, introduce new services, and address new use cases at a much faster pace. However, this also brings the challenge of designing, Testing, and monitoring those services at the same pace. CI/CD tools and processes are introduced to manage service and network lifecycle automatically.
Continuous Testing is a vital component of this process and needs to be integrated at all stages, from design to operations, from lab to production. Automation and testing tools allow MNOs ensure the vital Continuous Testing process for the entire network and service lifecycle. A combination of pro-active radio and core test probes combined with complete insights from network elements or monitoring tools and flexible development for test scenarios is typically the winning strategy for ensuring customer experience while keeping operational costs under control.
