Communications service providers (CSPs) today face challenges on all fronts: exploding network traffic, declining profit margins, competition from over-the-top (OTT) players, and growing consumer expectations. A new SDxCentral channel from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) aims to help providers not only survive but also thrive by speeding the transition to more agile cloud networks.
In a relatively short period of time, CSPs have gone from an undisputed place at the top of the food chain to potentially becoming commoditized as transport. The tsunami of data services and devices is pushing aging, inflexible networks to their limits, while OTT players such as Google and Amazon erode customer loyalty and profits. Traditional networks and business models are leaving providers flat-footed in the face of such hurdles.
The new HPE channel provides a centralized place for news and resources on how to transition traditional, hardware-based networks into more agile cloud networks powered by network functions virtualization (NFV). Focusing on how to bring innovative services to market faster while streamlining internal operations, the HPE channel aims to give providers the information they need to successfully design and deploy network services, gain insights from network data, and move into new business models.
To help providers leverage their resources no matter where they are in the transition, the HPE channel offers specialized coverage on:
- NFV and carrier software-defined networking (SDN)
- Operations support systems (OSS) and management and orchestration (MANO)
- Internet of Things (IoT)
- Telecom analytics
- Media and entertainment
The transition to a secure, cloud-enabled infrastructure is rarely direct or simple. Strengthen your infrastructure to take full advantage of emerging market opportunities.
