Dec 30, 2015The Fast Mode
Telecommunications operators and similar communications service providers are excited about the opportunities that Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) promise to provide. SDN and NFV technologies and their ability to improve network versatility, reduce operational costs and create new business opportunities are attracting significant interest from service providers of all sizes and in all regions around the world. Although the operational use of SDN and NFV is still in early stages, most service providers are currently formulating their strategies for deploying these technologies and many are conducting proof-of-concepts (PoC) evaluations in their test environments.
