Many hands make NFV work

Many hands make NFV work

While many organisations and service providers understand the benefits of NFV, the requirements to set up such an infrastructure are often seen as a major hurdle to adoption.  A multi-vendor alliance led by Atos has the specific goal of showing how NFV can help optimise network and business performance based on known and measured performance.

The Service Provider Cloud

The Service Provider Cloud

 

Software-defined networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) have revolutionized the traditional communication network architectures and have transformed the way communication service providers (CSPs) design their network infrastructure and services. The implementation of the Service Provider Cloud (Telco Cloud, Cable Cloud or Mobile Cloud architecture) is a strategic step for SPs to become competitive in the Digital Cohesion era.

SD-WAN is on fire! ...but is it enough to deliver growth?

SD-WAN is on fire! ...but is it enough to deliver growth?

Software Defined Networking (SDN) has been the the hot topic within network infrastructure industry for a few years now. We are now starting to see its influence not only in the data center, where SDN originated, but also within other areas such as core networks and enterprise services. Enterprise services is an area where SDN has real potential to impact services for end users.

 

Growth opportunities for service providers will come from selling other services (e.g. security) on top of a SD-WAN (especially to the under-served SME segment), and these should be delivered using SDN and virtual network functions. Only by offering additional services on top of SD-WAN will service providers be able to meet the customer requirements and grow their own business.

I'm Spartacus

Spartacus poster.jpg

Few who have watched the film of the same name will forget the compelling scene towards the end where the group of captured slaves are asked to identify Spartacus from amongst them and one by one they memorably stand to each proclaim ’I’m Spartacus.’

 

Bear with me as I somewhat tenuously (for now) draw a parallel between that scene and the claims and cries of IT and Networking vendors as they all clamour to shout ‘I’m Open’

 

It seems as though ever since I was a young lad, vendors in the IT community have positioned themselves as “open”.  It could be argued of course that no one would ever claim they are closed and proprietary so the word open became almost the default or ‘safe harbour’ position.
