Virtualization & SDN

OPPORTUNITIES FOR GROWTH

SDN combined with NFV provides an unprecedented level of digital control and agility to networks to face data explosion while minimizing costs.

The move to SDN / NFV and virtualization with IT and Cloud Convergence is now critical for any Communication Service Provider (CSP).  In addition, these 2 functions are the key pillars of the architecture of next generation networks including 5G.

However, more than technology, it creates new challenges and needs for CSPs:

  • New network engineering and operational processes
  • New skill sets
  • Changed business processes
  • Multi-vendor integration and new vendor relationship models that will enable an organization to migrate effectively and seamlessly to virtualization
