Network innovation happens at an unprecedented speed. With the emergence of 5G and IoT, communication service providers (Telco) will need to support a variety of new features at the edge of their networks. Relying on multiple purpose-built colocated hardware appliances will not allow them to move fast enough. Software on open servers enables them to rapidly respond to new requirements. The introduction of new services can happen in weeks rather than years. Now is the time for Telco's to kick off network transformation projects and pave the way to software-centric, cloud-based architectures.
With Netology Smart Edge, businesses and service providers can experience the full benefits of NFV and extend cloud-centric technologies all the way to the customer premise.
