SDN, NFV and IP Optical Convergence: harness the power of your network

The way in which the telecoms network is being managed by service providers is changing. Evolution towards open, programmable and more flexible architectures is becoming increasingly prominent, as the network struggles to keep up with the demand generated by rapidly escalating mobile data consumption and machine to machine traffic.

Various innovative networking technologies and principles are emerging, which promise enhanced service delivery capabilities. By embracing technologies like software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV) and IP optical convergence, operators can transform their network architecture, and innovate towards the future.

This paper published by in association with Cisco will examine the role of next-generation network technologies in delivering enhanced flexibility, scalability, service delivery capabilities, increased bandwidth, and perhaps most importantly, decreasing operating and capital expenditure.
