A new Stratecast white paper discusses microservices and the practical realities of managing and delivering services across hybrid networks.
June 1, 2017
In Stratecast's recent white paper, Enabling and Supporting Hybrid Network Services, analyst Karl Whitelock defines hybrid networks, explains the practical challenges of operating with legacy systems and networks, and describes how to address specific requirements for hybrid environments and virtualization.
Whitelock highlights how utilizing microservices is critical to enabling and supporting hybrid network services efficiently. He adds that microservices help service providers leverage greater flexibility and agility.
As service providers adopt VNFs and cloud architectures, back-office changes and hybrid network management rapidly become top priorities. Whitelock argues that introducing VNFs requires new, enhanced systems designed for real-time services because existing systems cannot address both physical networks and virtual network functions simultaneously.
The white paper defines the primary concerns that service providers share regarding their current abilities to adapt to hybrid network requirements. Three of the top concerns service providers have are:
- Supporting real-time and free-form customer interactions.
- Shortening time-to-market cycles to hours or days.
- Providing timely insight into service performance and customer experience.
