Rapid Network Transformation Services

Evolution of the Digital Network

With revenues for voice, messaging and internet services under constant pressure, Communication Service Providers (CSPs) are forced to reduce operational costs while speeding up the pace of innovation. Internet TV, mobile payments and cloud hosting are just a few of the OTT (Over the Top) digital services that are keeping the pressure on the traditional players in the telecommunications industry.

CSPs need to move quickly to leverage SDN/NFV which enables operational transformation for cost savings and new business models to generate incremental high margin revenue. SDN/NFV architectures will allow the CSPs to deliver their own digital services rather than enable OTT providers to use their networks to distribute services.  

The enablement of the CSP service delivery capability will cause an upheaval in the ecosystem and the formation of many new partnerships. A network will no longer be comprised of specialized single purpose hardware. The entire infrastructure will be software defined and programmable, so that a service provider can operate a cloud at scale and with the same operational simplicity and agility as an Amazon Web Services or Netflix.

The entire OSS landscape has to evolve from the silo nature to a centrally orchestrated and dynamically controlled closed loop interface.
