More than half of CSPs surveyed are considering running third-party applications in a vendor cloud. In fact, 8% have already implemented this approach, while another 44% are interested and likely to adopt.
By contrast, the rest of the respondents seem less likely to implement this approach. For example, 11% are simply not interested because they want to maintain application and security control, while 38% are only somewhat interested.
SDN and NFV are playing key roles in enabling digital transformations, but some CSPs still question the value of open source. Here's a look at how CSPs view open source as well their take on the merger of their IT and network domains.
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.
This hour-long webinar will provide a presentation and discussion of ONOS YANG Tools, a new Java tool-chain, introduced with ONOS Kingfisher release, and the upcoming support of OpenConfig and OpenROADM models.
