In recent years, workloads that first moved from on-prem to the cloud have now become distributed across multiple clouds, data centres and the edge. With network traffic surging, and the pace of change accelerating daily, telcos must leverage end-to-end connectivity to effectively harness data and respond to digital-first customers.

HPE is the transformation catalyst for the 5G economy

HPE’s open solutions span the enterprise edge, the telco network and multiple clouds. Together with our ecosystem of partners, we help telcos automate operations, drive efficiencies and transform their businesses. With HPE, you can:

  • Create new revenue streams by creating new differentiated services leveraging 5G and edge
  • Increase agility and innovation by disaggregating the network through open multi-vendor solutions based on scalable, optimised infrastructure
  • Align costs to revenues with consumption-based models, reducing the risk of entering new markets
  • Manage operational complexity with AI/ML based automation
  • Fortify security, trust and privacy while increasing customer retention
  • Collaborate with hyperscalers and application vendors to deliver new workloads from the edge across multiple clouds
Unlock the full potential of 5G

Introduce new 5G services, ensuring they co-exist with both current 3G/4G and the potential for new Wi-Fi 6 RAN deployments. Break-away from vendor lock-in by moving to an open, cloud-native, modular network core deployed on commercial industry-standard infrastructure or any cloud.

Enable the Open RAN

Reduce operational complexity and accelerate time to value with open distributed infrastructure management, standards compliant infrastructure and pre-validated, telco-optimised designs. Deliver efficiencies across your access network by virtualising the RAN, and simplify infrastructure by disaggregating hardware, and software for maximum flexibility.

Ignite new revenues at the telco edge

Win and retain customers with personalised sticky services that you deploy seamlessly across Wi-Fi 6, 5G, and existing networks. Scale quickly to meet unpredictable demands for applications and content, while automating orchestration, assurance and optimisation of service quality.


Match your costs to your 5G service revenue. Experience the Telco Cloud with HPE GreenLake.
