The 2016 World Mobile Congress (MWC2016) will be held in Fira Gran Via, Barcelona, ​​Spain, from February 22nd to February 25th. On the eve of the opening of the conference, Martina Kurth, Research Director of Gartner Inc., shared in advance the latest views of the conference's two major hotspots: software-defined networking SDN and network function virtualization NFV.
1. Why SDN and NFV have become the main topic of MWC2016?
With the saturation of the traditional telecommunication market, many communication service providers/telecom operators must undergo digital transformation. However, the existing network infrastructure cannot support this transformation. In particular, with the rise of IoT and machine-to-machine communication requirements, the communication system architecture that originally supported millions of millions of people can no longer support almost real-time communication. The billions of IoT devices, that is, traditional network architectures have not kept pace with the development of the Internet of Things, and need to build (invest) cloud-centric, more flexible software-defined infrastructure!
The SDN decoupling control and data plane make the network more flexible and efficient, and the NFV can be realized through standard hardware, which allows the enterprise or operator to no longer rely on proprietary network hardware devices, and can also construct services that can flexibly support services. Network resources. In addition, the use of SDN and NFV can also significantly reduce telecom operators' expenditures and accelerate the on-line speed of new services. Therefore, telecom operators around the world are paying attention to and evaluating SDN and NFV, and even have trial commercials on small-scale commercial projects.
2. Will SDN and NFV completely change the telecommunications industry in the next 5-10 years?
Telecom operators will fundamentally change their network operations and IT operations. This is because SDN and NFV bring about entirely new changes - from deploying services on traditional hardware to business-driven networks. In other words, SDN and NFV will change the DNA of network operators and create new management methods and services for their customers. So, SDN and NFV will revolutionize the telecommunications industry in the next 5-10 years.
3. How does the value of SDN and NFV appear?
Although telecom operators all over the world are embracing SDN and NFV, CXO has a question as to what kind of return on investment will SDN and NFV bring. How big is the potential of virtualization? The answer is that SDN and NFV will drive the growth of digital services, including virtual VPN services; at the same time, it will also increase operational efficiency, and flexibility will also accelerate the pace of innovation for operators. In short, traditional telecom operators who integrate SDN and NFV technologies first will be able to take the lead in the telecommunications market.
4. What is the relationship between the Internet of Things and SDN and NFV?
The Internet of Things and M2M will be new market opportunities in the future, while virtualization and software-driven infrastructure will bring more innovation. Of course, in the face of exponential growth in the number of things, the timely response to business needs and the flexibility to change the network configuration will be the basis of the foundation, and to achieve this, SDN (flexibility) and NFV (business arrangement) are essential . Therefore, telecom operators want to make a difference in the era of the Internet of Things. SDN and NFV are the cornerstones.
