Alcatel-Lucent releases a new white paper:
Communication Service Providers are starting to virtualise communications and messaging applications, along with fixed and mobile network functions, to reap the same rewards their cloud customers are enjoying.
Virtualising network functions gives CSPs new opportunities to optimize their infrastructures and increase service agility. With this approach, CSPs can move toward a homogeneous cloud-based infrastructure where network elements and applications are implemented as sets of virtual machines, storage devices and associated network configurations. Because the infrastructure is now shared and amortized across all applications, it becomes a platform for delivering carrier cloud services to enterprises and for transforming the CSP’s own operations.
Dor Skuler, Vice President and General Manager of the CloudBand Business Unit will be speaking about the latest developments of Network Functions Virtualisation at SDN World. To find out more, you can download their new white paper here: Network Functions Virtualization: From Vaporware to New Era
