5G and SDN Laying the Software-Defined Foundations for 5G Networks

Sdxcentral

5G and the applications it enables, including IoT, requires a significant upgrade and overhaul of carrier infrastructure beyond the radio networks (RAN). To support the diversity of applications, explosion in number and types of devices, capacity and scale of traffic, CSPs (communications service providers) are turning to adoption of data center innovation adapted and re-developed for telco networks. Virtualization, software-defined controls, distributed computing technologies in the form of NFV, SDN and MEC play key roles in the new telco infrastructure. One of the key technologies is SDN, which is important to creating flexibility in the network to support 5G constructs such as network slicing. SDN’s centralized management and distributed controls over complex software-defined networks across the mobile infrastructure is also a key element in 5G scalability.

Combat Zombie VMs and Reduce VM Sprawl in Your Datacenter

5 Nine

Inability to control VM growth in your datacenter due to VM sprawl can result in security vulnerabilities, performance bottlenecks and potential revenue loss. And without the right combination of tools, techniques, and know-how, Zombie VMs virtual machines that were previously created for a specific purpose but presently do not have a clear-cut utility) could potentially hurt your entire infrastructure.

Enabling Closed Loop Assurance through Real-time Analytics with EXFO

Pipeline

One of the advantages of software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) is the ability to modify the network on the fly. A closed feedback loop between the service assurance solution and the orchestration system enables network self-healing and self-optimization when providing mission critical services. By identifying performance issues we can take immediate action to solve problems or improve service reliability, thus reducing mean time to repair (MTTR).
