5G will push CSPs to accelerate and broaden their NFV/SDN-related initiatives

Mainstream adoption of NFV/SDN will coincide with 5G ramp

Leading communication service providers (CSPs) will accelerate and broaden their network transformations en route to deploying 5G and becoming digital service providers (DSPs). Softwarization, virtualization and cloudification are foundational aspects of a DSP’s network. These CSPs, which started their network virtualization journeys in the mid-2010s with virtual machines, are now transitioning to containers and ultimately to a cloud-native, microservices-based architecture.

Crossing the chasm: Transforming from a CSP to a DSP

Communication service providers (CSPs) are embarking on transformation journeys to evolve into digital service providers (DSPs), leveraging nascent technologies such as software-mediated networking (NFV/SDN), cloud, 5G, analytics, automation and artificial intelligence. During the webinar, TBR will provide its definition of a DSP and characterize how a CSP can evolve into a DSP. Join Telecom Senior Analysts Chris Antlitz and Michael Soper for an in-depth review of service provider digital transformation.

Don’t miss:

  • The definition of a DSP
  • The attributes and characteristics of CSPs versus DSPs
  • The steps CSPs must take — and the technologies they must leverage — to transform into DSPs
  • Which operators are leading
  • Which vendors are successfully enabling transformation

 

TBR webinars are held typically on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. ET and include a 15-minute Q&A session following the main presentation. Previous webinars can be viewed anytime on TBR’s Webinar Portal.

Crossing the chasm from a CSP to a DSP

Communication service providers (CSPs) are challenged to transform into digital service providers (DSPs) to remain relevant and be successful in the digital era. This transformation is a monumental undertaking and is a fundamental change in not only the business model, but also the operational and technological aspects of CSPs.
