Telecom operators are also using Kubernetes to orchestrate their applications in a distributed environment involving many edge nodes. But due to the large scale of telco networks – which includes disparate cloud systems – Kubernetes adoption requires different architectures for different use cases. Specifically, if we look at a use case where Kubernetes is used to orchestrate edge workloads, there are various frameworks and public cloud managed Kubernetes solutions are available that offer different benefits and gives telecom operator...
