Lowering the TCO with NFV and SDN
February 19, 2016
In this paper, we look at the TCO advantages of virtualization within an eight-year framework of a specific core network element – the application delive​ry controller (ADC) – by comparing the capex and opex in a legacy infrastructure versus a virtualized one, plus the additional revenues a virtualized environment can generate.
New report: Getting the best QoE. Trends in traffic management and mobile core optimization
February 18, 2016
This report explores the shift from the legacy, element-based approach to optimization to one based on QoE and operating in real time. We look at how the increased traffic volume and complexity, along with its uneven distribution, widens the scope for optimization as networks become more dynamic.
Telefonica Argentina: Leaving the silos behind to embrace end-to-end optimization
February 14, 2016
In our final interview for the “Getting the best QoE” report, we talked to Adrian Di Meo, CTO at Telefonica Argentina, about how mobile operators need to change not only their networks but their internal structure to optimize network end-to-end and to maximize QoE.
Sketching the path toward RAN virtualization with ASOCS
February 11, 2016
At the RAN USA conference in San Francisco at the end of January, Chih-Lin I from China Mobile reminded us ETSI its Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) framework span the entire network, from the core to the RAN. The RAN is an essential part of virtualization efforts to untie functions not only from infrastructure, but also…
