Network virtualization, SDN and analytics provide the automation, programmability and agility needed to deliver complex services and new use cases in 5G networks. Networks must be flexible and scalable to support massive numbers of devices across different verticals. As these networks continue to transform, for the foreseeable future the networks will consist of both legacy and virtualized network functions thereby creating hybrid networks. To manage these flexible, programmable, scalable, evolving hybrid networks, we need network management that manages end-to-end across Radio, Transport, and Core network technologies.
