In most cases, service providers' migration to virtualization have led to the addition of more components and functions that attempt to bridge the legacy networks with new virtualized elements and applications. By bringing a software developer's mindset to his job, Dunstan has taken a subtractive approach instead of an additive approach to CenturyLink's third-generation NFV/SDN employment, which he said would increase CenturyLink's velocity.
Wilson wrote that Dunstan's NFV/SDN engineering team was leveraging Agile IT software development principles that were also used at Active Broadband. Instead of relying on vendors and system integrators, Dunstan's team is taking an internal approach to its next NFV/SDN phase by writing its own software.
10/16/2017 Huawei Network Transformation SeminarThe adoption of virtualization technology and cloud architectures by telecom network operators is now well underway but there is still a long way to go before the transition to an era of Network Functions Cloudification (NFC) is complete.
In this Telco Transformation radio show, IHS Markit's Michael Howard will talk about the network domains that carriers are targeting for SDN, the top SDN services that are driving revenues and the deployment barriers this year. Howard will also address whether carriers are embracing open source or using vendor-specific implementations.
MEF is working to define, deliver, and certify dynamic communications services that are orchestrated across a global ecosystem of automated, virtualized and interconnected networks. In this radio show, MEF CTO Pascal Menezes talks about the challenges and the solutions that his organization is working on and provides a preview of the MEF17 conference in November.
Software-defined networking (SDN) is a key component of services providers' virtualization game plans and AT&T and Level 3 Communications have been at the forefront of its adoption.
In this webinar, Andrew Dugan, CTO of Level 3 Communications, and Amy Wheelus, Vice President of Cloud and D2 Platform Integration at AT&T, will discuss how their companies have leveraged SDN within their networks, services and applications. Some of the key areas that will be covered include:
Automation, APIs and lifecycle service orchestration
The continued evolution of SDN-based solutions and SDN in networks, including SD-WAN, dynamic cloud connections and scalable Ethernet and security solutions.
