          Please click the link below to join the webinar:

          Join us for the kick-off meeting of the Cloud Native Network Functions (CNF) Working Group. The goal for the group is to create a software conformance program, similar to the Kubernetes Conformance Program, that any telco application implementation can use to demonstrate that they are conformant and interoperable with cloud native principles. This will aid companies such as communications service providers and large scale enterprises, running internal telecommunications-like infrastructure, to better understand what cloud native means for telecommunications workloads and help build consensus around industry adoption of cloud native technologies.
          See for background.
