In recent years, SDN and NFV have matured from technologies with potential into mandatory requirements for agile, fast and cost-efficient production of communication services. We’re now seeing widespread deployment with communication service providers (CSPs) implementing ambitious digitization projects. Many CSPs are combining this with a transition towards full automation and even autonomous operations, while also minimizing the amount of proprietary hardware. Standard hardware components in combination with network operating systems and software appliances will form the networks of the future ...

Amid all of the technological and architectural changes taking place in data infrastructure heading into 2019, the elephant in the room is the internet of things. Even without the prospect of millions – no, billions – of connected devices feeding data back to processing centers, and vice versa, the world was on a trajectory of exponentially larger volumes every year. Now, that process has been kicked into even higher gear, and networks are on the front lines in the effort to keep it all on track ...
