Intelligent Switching Services

Evolving the Intelligent Network

The telecommunications industry is undergoing a sea change that is driving both network transformation and paradigm shifts in the business model. Traditional carriers face a steady rise in demand for network capacity and density. They must reduce both total cost and time-to-market if they expect to meet the challenge.

Network equipment makers are searching for attractive alternatives to proprietary hardware that are software-defined and deliver digital services at scale. At the same time, the decades-old relationship between network equipment makers and service providers is being upended because of mega trends that include:

  • Transition towards an agile software-defined architecture 
  • Open networking and bare metal switches 
  • Shift to programmable network hardware, silicon and white-label solutions
  • Unprecedented bandwidth demands from consumers at access requires OEMs to enhance the infrastructure with higher capacities (10G – 400G)
