Do you want agility from SDN/NFV? There’s already a methodology for that

SDN NFVWhen commentators talk about SDN/NFV strategy and benefits it is often linked to service agility. But what is surprising to me is that nobody seems to make the link to the Agile Software Development model that is already widely adopted in the wider ICT industry.


In the past, software developers used to plan all the features for a major release and then do a project plan that said we can deliver it all 18-24 months from now. Many developers would then get to work, and often miss the deadline at the end.


With so much of the new network being software-based and software-defined, integration and development have become key skills our customers look to Juniper to provide: design, development, configuration and deployment are essential phases of many of our projects.  To that end we have put in place a Professional Services consulting practice dedicated to management and platforms integration.  Whether integrating into an OSS/BSS platform for end to end provisioning, using the Junos SDK to reach deep into the heart of the network to extract maximum value, or developing sophisticated fault correlation tools to identify when multiple alerts are in fact the result of a single issue, these experts provide the glue to bring it all together.
