Digital Transformations: Evolution
Communications service providers of all shapes and sizes are undergoing an evolution of their network architectures in order to become more agile and to better serve their customers with web-scale operations and services.
The big challenges for communications service providers' digital transformations are the legacy infrastructures that have been built up layer-by-layer over many years. While hybrid networks are the short-term goal for CSPs, they want to rebuild their architectures by virtualizing network elements to take advantage of cloud-native operations.
A recent report by Heavy Reading , which was sponsored by Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. , outlined the elements of CSPs' digital transformation journeys and identified five key pillars to the evolutionary process.
