Today’s service providers need ways to drive new revenue and modernize their operations. However, they are stuck with stacks of appliances (routers, firewalls, etc.) at the customer site and are concerned about innovation that puts their existing network at risk.
Brian will share insights from recent real-world NFV deployments by Masergy and Dartpoints that demonstrate how service providers can replace stacks of appliances with software running on servers (COTS or hybrid devices) to develop a dynamic new service offering at the access network. He’ll show how providers can enable innovative services and give their customers flexibility without retrofitting the entire network environment and without risk to their existing service delivery systems.
