Building Blocks of Rakuten Mobile Telco Cloud

Rakuten is building the world's first end-to-end, fully virtualized, cloud native mobile network, ready for 5G. This mobile network is being built with innovative cloud native architecture that is fully virtualized from radio access to core, with end-to-end automation for both network operations and services.
