Is IoT the Driver for NFV within CSPs?

Panel Discussion This TelecomTV Superpanel, sponsored by Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Intel, was held at the truly remarkable Louwman Museum in The Hague, and brought together an exceptional team of very senior NFV experts in a lively and informative debate examining the proposition that IoT is a major driver for NFV in Communication Service Provider networks. It is a particularly important subject because IoT services have the potential to give CSPs the ability to offer their customers exciting new services and applications - and that also means exciting new revenue opportunities for the CSPs themselves, but only if they go about things in the right way.

To make new services profitable, carriers need to offer more than just connectivity. They need to offer a platform to deliver secure, assured, automated and optimised managed services if they are to take maximum advantage of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity which, analysts have calculated, will be worth some US$1.3 TRILLION.

PARTICIPANTS: Lynn Comp. Director of Market Development, Network Platforms Group, Intel David Vasquez. Senior IoT Specialist, Verizon. Ray Mota. CEO and Principal Analyst. ACG Research. Eric De Beau. Head of R&D, Network Division, IT Solutions for the Core Network. Orange. Prodip Sen. CTO, Network Functions Virtualisation, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Moderator: Martyn Warwick. Editor-in-Chief.

Operators need more agile ways to deliver network services if they’re to fully realize the benefits of cloud computing. And many see Carrier Software-Defined Networking as the way forward.

Special-purpose networks, such as IP-VPNs, SD-WANs, and low-latency trading networks have been offered by CSPs for many years but engender large extra capex and opex costs. Re-imagining these networks as slices of a common network infrastructure promises to decrease the capex cost, but makes them more complex to plan, instantiate, and manage across the network domains. Moreover, the requirements of network slicing extend across every area of the network as well as network and business operations and the supporting OSS and BSS software systems. It will be a long journey. ACG Research is studying and following these journeys by the standards bodies, service providers, and vendors as they create the sliced network of the future.
