Simplify and Automate for Enhanced Service Agility

untitled

The telecoms industry has seen increased levels of consolidation in the past 12-18 months with a number of high profile mergers and acquisitions taking place. Operators are diversifying product lines to encompass multiple industry verticals, with a prime example seeing fixed operators acquiring mobile players to offer comprehensive multiplay services; while ISPs are also becoming increasingly active in the home television market by acquiring TV programming rights and offering new on-demand services.

The consequences of market consolidation means the telecoms network has to be able to manage an increasing amount of data-heavy services of different types. One technology beginning to flourish for service providers is Network Functions Virtualization, which presents opportunities for network operations to become simplified, automated and agile than previously thought possible.

This paper from Cisco examines:

  • How NFV could help network services and features be made available more quickly.
  • Reduced network opex benefits presented by NFV and software defined networking.
  • Automation of service delivery through the use of sophisticated network orchestration.
