As NFV gains mainstream production status across carriers and service providers worldwide, important facts about the realities of a software-defined network world are coming to light.


Service levels for network functions—more commonly referred to as “service assurance”—is a concept created in the days when network functions were anything but virtual. These network services were tied to physical devices, and that hardware was “assured” to deliver its assigned “services” at a specified up-time.


In NFV, those now-virtualized network functions—or VNFs—must still meet desired service targets in order for the network to support its assigned applications at expected levels.

Telecommunication service providers have evolved over the decades, but fundamentally they are still operating the original business model: Build infrastructure and sell services over it.


There are many industries that have been disrupted by new entrants, taking adavntages of digital transformation: Uber has dirsupted the taxi, AirBnB disrupts the hospitality market, Kodak was disrupted by digital photography...


Will you be the Service Provider disrupting the telco space, or will you be the Service Provider disrupted by others? 




EVPN as a stepping stone for SDN

EVPN OverlayThis blog describes the story of a customer whose data center network is growing very fast, to the point that their traditional access-aggregation-core layer 2 architecture starts crumbling.  It explains how EVPN-VXLAN solves the scaling issues by introducing a layer 3 IP fabric without having to give up layer 2 services for the applications (thus avoiding a rewrite of the application).
