The Business Value of Carrier-Grade NFV Infrastructure

Robert Haim of ACG Research performed the economic analysis for performance, high availability, and manageability advantages of HPE’s Helion OpenStack Carrier-Grade (HPE HCG) solution versus a competing enterprise-grade product over five years. ACG found a 64% TCO based return on investment and total TCO savings of 19% in favor of HPE HCG based on its superior performance. In high availability, a $1.2B in revenue differential over five years was found for a service provider that decides to deploy HPE HCG instead of an enterprise-grade solution. The carrier-grade manageability of HPE HCG lowers overall operations expense with a marginal savings of $55K per year for every hour saved in a day with lower labor intervention in the network operations.
