In conjunction with our partner Converge! Network Digest, AvidThink is pleased to announce our eighth site in the Next-Generation Infrastructure series: the 2021 Telco Infrastructure Resource Site and Report.
The Next-Gen Telco Infrastructure Resource Site and Report provides technology readers with perspectives and insights from industry leaders and innovators like Aarna Networks, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM, Ribbon Communications, and Spirent as well as telecommunication organizations in the space including Colt, Comcast Business, Microsoft Azure, and Telia Carrier. The site also includes open-source organizations in the telco infrastructure space including LF Networking Anuket and the Open Networking Foundation as well as insights from telco public cloud evangelist, TelcoDR. We’ll be rotating in new content periodically from thought leaders, as well as our sponsors and partners, so keep your eye on the site as we bring you the latest insights into telco infrastructure.
Telcos are living in interesting times. The NFV infrastructure (NFVI) decision, from when NFV was first adopted, has evolved dramatically. The Telco Infrastructure Report traces the NFV journey since the movement began in 2012. It examines major telco initiatives like 5G, SD-WAN/SASE, private networks, IoT, OSS/BSS modernization and the choices telcos face in building the next-generation telco cloud to support these efforts. As we’re finding, the telco infrastructure decision is not a single choice but a series of ongoing smaller decisions tied to critical business initiatives. And with the rise of hyperscalers, telcos have many more options for NFVI, but are understandably wary of making a complete switch to hyperscaler infrastructure.
Download the report and learn about key initiatives that will drive telco infrastructure trends over the next few years, the best practices from leading telcos we’ve spoken with, and recommendations to assist in formulating your strategy for the telco cloud.
