5G and the Internet of Things make autonomous telecommunications networks not just desirable, but essential. And, with AI and ML technologies becoming ever more advanced, fully zero-touch management and maintenance seem to be just around the corner.
Technological advances are bringing new challenges and opportunities for telcos, along with a great deal of uncertainty. CTOs and CIOs must find the best way forward for their companies’ IoT, virtualization and assurance strategies, but a new survey shows that they are far from unanimous in terms of the specifics of future development.
Should telcos embrace virtualization, adopting SDN/NFV, the cloud, DevOps and microservices in the drive to maximize revenues from B2B relationships? Given that these new technologies are already redefining the way CSPs operate, the question might be better phrased “evolution or extinction – which is it to be?”
A seamless merger between physical networks with new virtual technologies can bring huge benefits for telecoms operators – allowing them to automate and deploy the services their customers want at a speed previously unimaginable.
Collaboration is the future for mobile operators and third-party service and application providers, underpinned by SDN/NFV technologies that provide next generation virtualization and put the customer firmly center stage.
