Northbound SDN & NFV Solutions
Service providers may be able to turn up a service at the click of a button reducing their costs and provisioning intervals, however if they cannot track events, support a pay as you grow/use model, dynamically price, invoice, expose all the new “at-the-click-of-a-button-services” through a customer portal…. then we believe they are missing a huge opportunity! The SDN/NFV revolution allows CloudSmartz to propose a modular OSS/BSS platform and Professional Services for integration that will jump start Service Providers ability to productize and monetize their new service offerings and capabilities.
Realizing the Benefits of the SDN & NFV Revolution:
The industry has been heavily “Southbound” focused because the “Northbound” is dependent upon the Southbound being functional and available for control. Service Providers have been primarily achieving CapEx and OpEx savings benefits of SDN & NFV (which is important and not to be trivialized). It’s a logical first step and a big step. However, with the Southbound side becoming solidified and standardized we believe it’s time to turn our attention Northbound. We can capitalize beyond CapEx and OpEx savings and while moving on to generating new streams of revenue by productizing and monetizing newly virtualized capabilities and services.
