"The main challenge of operators is to accelerate the provision of network services to better serve customers' needs while understanding and rationalising investments"
The insatiable thirst for data speed and bandwidth in the end-customer device market pushes for further developments of networks. Following UMTS, Wifi, HSDPA - LTE, DSL Vectoring will be the next standard providing this higher bandwidth to consumers. The consumer market produces day by day more “digital” content - music streaming services like Spotify, Napster or Aupeo - file services such as Dropbox, Google Drive or iCloud - Video on Demand from various providers. And on top, enterprises provide more and more cloud services to customers and employees.
Network operators need to optimise network assets. Enterprises need to investigate the future-proof of their private cloud infrastructure. In many cases, it is also an opportunity to incorporate a fundamental change in architecture with a simplification of the supply chain reducing the maintenance burden and delivering substantial performance improvements and savings.
