Deploying SDN/NFV Technologies at Scale

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)  have enabled new and innovative operating models that impact virtually every business.

Network virtualization, software-defined environments and cloud-based technologies enable service providers to transform their infrastructure and fundamentally shift the way they do business.

Overview

The dilemma facing network operators is that their legacy is binding their business while their future is trapped in the lab. The shift to next-generation networks that are both software-defined and virtualized is more than just a technology shift. It’s a shift in how the business behaves, the ecosystems that surround it and the agility with which it operates.

But how do you get at this value? It starts with a plan. Moving the business forward isn’t a sprint; it’s a march. Each step must be a pragmatic move forward – from establishing the business case, to planning migration stages and developing an operating model that accounts for many vendor technologies in a hybrid environment.

To execute the plan, you need a partner that can bring everything together in one place. And you need operational systems that can keep pace with the creativity of the business, and deliver on innovative services within small windows of opportunity. 

The NEC/Netcracker solution combines the leading edge of standards-based infrastructure, applications and services together with a pragmatic operational plan that focuses on near-term opportunities without losing sight of the long-term vision, while helping you effectively manage through that transition.
