Software Defined Networking along with Network Function Virtualisation have brought an evolution in the telecommunications laying out the bases for 5G networks and its softwarisation. The separation between the data plane and the control plane, along with having a decentralisation of the latter, have allowed to have a better scalability and reliability while reducing the latency. A lot of effort has been put into creating a distributed controller, but most of the solutions provided by now have a monolithic approach that reduces the benefits of having a software defined network. Disaggregating the controller and handling it as microservices is the solution to problems faced when working with a monolithic approach. Microservices enable the cloud native approach which is essential to benefit from the architecture of the 5G Core defined by the 3GPP standards development organisation. Applying the concept of NFV allows to have a softwarised version of the entire network structure. The expectation is that the 5G Core will be deployed on an orchestrated cloud infrastructure and in this thesis work we aim to provide an application of this concept by using Kubernetes as an implementation of the MANO standard. This means Kubernetes acts as a Network Function Virtualisation Orchestrator (NFVO), Virtualised Network Function Manager (VNFM) and Virtualised Infrastructure Manager (VIM) rather than just a Network Function Virtualisation Infrastructure. While OSM has been adopted for this purpose in various scenarios, this work proposes Kubernetes opposed to OSM as the MANO standard implementation.
