Communications service providers (CSPs) that have added cloud-native computing to their networks are already benefiting from the ability to deliver services faster than the industry average, according to a new report published by research company Analysys Mason.
These CSPs are starting to transform the cost of building and operation the network and are positioning themselves to generate new revenues from exciting opportunities opening up in the enterprise market.
CSPs, wishing to benefit from network function virtualization (NFV) services before building the centralized NFV data center, can use distributed NFV model and deploy open Universal CPE (uCPE) and gain the agility and capability to deliver services faster.
The report, entitled “The evolution to cloud-native NFV: early adoption brings benefits with a flexible approach” states that Webscale companies such as Google, Alibaba, Facebook and Tencent are using cloud-native computing. It is used as the fastest and most efficient way of developing and deploying software in the cloud. This is also the case with CSPs who ‘softwareise’ their networks through NFV.
