Service providers are faced with a daunting task of accelerating services deployment to achieve business needs. This is in addition to accelerating the benefits of lowering cap-ex and op-ex. All communications and cloud service providers are beginning to implement software-defined networking (SDN) and networking functions virtualization (NFV) solutions in their networks.
SDN and NFV have energized the service provider networking industry and there has been lot of discussion on how service providers, particularly communications service providers, will transform their network operations and service delivery.
This is the year when service providers will share their deployment lessons and early experiences of leveraging SDN and NFV in their networks. The popular approach at communication service providers is to virtualize a part of their infrastructure, move network functions into the cloud, use NFV to run the functions in white boxes, and use SDN to control the operation of the underlying network.
SDN and NFV approaches, experiences, and challenges in service provider networks is an important area of coverage at the upcoming Open Networking Summit 2015, held June 14-18 in Silicon Valley, California.
