Ericsson believes that applying the concepts of software-defined networking (SDN) to service provider networks requires us to think more holistically than the most commonly talked about use cases for SDN. It requires us to think about a logically centralized control plane that covers both the data center and the WAN. It further requires orchestration that covers both physical and virtual network infrastructure with the ability to expose service capabilities directly to applications, enterprises, and residential consumers.

As service providers move from limited scope network functions virtualization (NFV) trials to full operationalization, they are challenged with delivering data services across heterogeneous physical and virtualized networks. Lifecycle service orchestration (LSO) does what legacy operations support systems (OSS) cannot – span the entire spectrum of service fulfillment and assurance tasks across multi-vendor infrastructure, bridging traditional physical, and next-generation virtualized network functions (VNFs).

Communication service providers (CSPs) are facing market challenges deriving from growing data demands, a shifting landscape towards over-the-top services, and growing costs to maintain the network while user fees remain flat. CSPs are looking to NFV as the solution to this problem. This webinar with HPE OpenNFV’s technical expert, Melody Howard-Yuhn, will breakdown what NFV is, how it helps CSPs overcome their network challenges, detail essential use cases, and explore the ramifications of emerging software-centric networking trends like NFV.
