5G will completely change the technology landscape across all industries, from healthcare and finance to transportation and government. It will enable massive machine-to-machine communications, IoT innovation and create a greenfield for new services that have yet to be developed. So what does this mean for network infrastructure? How are carriers and service providers using open networking platforms like ONAP, OpenDaylight and OPNFV to enable their networks to support 5G and next generation services?

Moderated by Phil Robb, Technical Director of ONAP and Executive Director of OpenDaylight, this panel will discuss network management for 5G including infrastructure challenges, best practices for deploying SDN and NFV, and the importance of creating a flexible, agile network to support a connected future.
