Deploying Telco-grade cloud solutions and NFV

Network functions virtualization: the transformation of the Telco network

Representing the biggest potential transformation for telcos in two decades, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is bringing agility, flexibility, efficiency and cost savings to the networking world in the same way that virtualization and cloud technologies have transformed the enterprise server world. How can telcos maximize the benefits of NFV and what are the key requirements for a successful transformation?

This paper considers the strategic challenge facing telcos, the need to move to a new network architecture, and the business benefits of NFV and Software-De ned Networks (SDN). It then goes on to outline the key elements of a successful network transformation, before exploring how telcos can maintain rock-solid network reliability in a highly virtualized environment.
