Sigma for NFV/SDN
Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) technologies reduce operator CapEx by commoditizing expensive networking equipment and OpEx through the automation and hosting of virtual network functions. NFV and SDN also encourages the innovative use of new and updated network functions and services, particularly when aligned with a DevOps approach. To help operators maximise ROI, Sigma for NFV/SDN provides a catalog-driven, standards-based solution that continuously and dynamically monitors and exposes available network capability, and automates much of the ordering and provisioning process for service providers, bridging between legacy networks and the virtualized capabilities of NFV/SDN.
“5G Moves Us Well Beyond Connectivity”
Sigma CTO Catherine Michel gives her perspective on what 5G really means for service providers.
- The exciting times the industry faces are really about the business models that can be created as a result of 5G. Service providers need to keep focus on what matters to build profitable business lines.
- We’ll not only see networking convergence, but more importantly, we’ll see business convergence that requires very close management of the data of what you sell and deliver to customers.
- Consumer demand for 5G connectivity will be the initial push, but it’s really 5G-enabled services that accelerate the digital transformation of businesses — enterprises, SMEs, SOHOs — that will provide long-term revenue opportunity for service providers.
