IT and Network Transformation Infrastructure

July 6, 2018

Communications Service Providers (CoSPs) are using virtualization to improve service agility in the network. Because Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) run on similar infrastructure to IT workloads, there is the potential for a hybrid platform to serve them both. The CoSP cloud, also known as telco cloud would enable resources to be flexibly reallocated between the network and IT applications, depending on the network traffic level.Although the infrastructure is similar in the IT and network domains, the operational approach is different. In the network, software changes are infrequent and meticulously planned. In IT, DevOps practices are increasingly enabling more frequent updates to live systems. To enable the CoSP cloud, the network infrastructure platform needs to evolve towards using microservices in a software- defined data center, so that network services can be updated in the same way that IT systems are.Ultimately, having greater agility in the network will enable new revenue opportunities, with the potential to more easily launch niche services, and applications for edge computing and 5G.
