As virtualization technologies like software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) infiltrate the networking and security realms of the telecom world, several parts of the back office information technology infrastructure are due to be reinvented to address the newly created service management challenges. A new generation of service delivery and management solutions has to be designed to tie together the new building blocks involved in virtualized architectures and bridge them smoothly with capabilities enabled by legacy systems.
A critical characteristic of these so-called “orchestration platforms” is agility. As SDN and NFV innovation accelerates and the number of devices, systems, and functions to be on boarded and managed by the service provider increases exponentially and rapidly.
This webinar will discuss the emerging standards and requirements for managing service-provider IT infrastructure, including next-generation orchestration, operations support system (OSS)/business support systems (BSS), and NFV technologies. It will present the findings of a new report on Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO), published by The Rayno Report. The report indicates that service providers are ready to overhaul their OSS/BSS and IT infrastructures and spend $2.75 billion over the next five years to invest in new LSO technologies
UBIqube CEO Nabil Souli will team with Scott Raynovich to discuss the emergence of a new layer of software development technologies and the necessity for a “DevOps Culture.” Souli will make the case for a new agile development infrastructure that will increase flexibility and velocity in global communications offerings. This will include a case study on how NTT delivered new DevOps-style services using UBIqube’s MSActivator technology.
