Faster time to market requires a new kind of service assurance. The rush to virtualize our world, has passed furiously through the server and storage markets with great speed and success. Infrastructure has consolidated, services are more robustly managed, and time to market has dramatically improved in all areas except one. And that time is upon us; as carriers are now racing to via
This Heavy Reading white paper by analyst Ari Banerjee reviews the appeal of one of the biggest trends in telecom today SDN (Software Defined Networking) and NFV (Network Function Virtualization), and the key reasons why operators are moving towards a virtualized network world.
Heavy Reading’s research shows that servicer providers are aware that their legacy service assurance systems will no longer work in the virtualized network world that SDN and NFV will unleash. As their services become more blended, customers will become more demanding and expect seamless service to any device, anytime, anywhere. Service providers must turn to a unified service assurance platform that enables them to handle the scale and unpredictability of NFV workloads, dynamic service delivery based on service chaining, multi-domains of a hybrid cloud models and the virtual components of an SDN network.
The paper concludes how Monolith AssureNow (now Federos Assure1) supports the key service assurance functional requirements for a virtualized world and why operators should take a close look at the solution before they make any investment decision on service assurance solutions.
