IP for the Networked Society enables service providers to grow their businesses profitably. It allows them to create and offer differentiating services with agility and efficiency. The constant development of new mobile devices, new cloud applications and new IP technologies brings tremendous opportunities for operators to expand in such areas as M2M and other business models.
Ericsson and Telstra have jointly established a Center of Excellence for Programmable Networks to accelerate the commercial deployment of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) driven use cases and solutions. A recently completed initiative is the trial for the Virtual Enterprise Gateway solution.
Ericsson Virtual Router completes Ericsson’s end-to-end router portfolio – from the Router 6000 series for the edge and metro, to SSR 8000 for the IP edge and core. Ericsson Virtual Router represents a fundamental rethinking around how network functions will be deployed in next-generation networks and datacenters.
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is commonly described as a network architecture concept that uses IT virtualization technologies to virtualize entire classes of network node functions. The introduction of SDN adds even more potential to NFV, as traffic no longer needs to be steered based on IP addresses alone.
The evolution toward Network Functions Virtualization and the distributed cloud brings new challenges for wide area networks (WANs). By deploying software-defined networking-based Traffic Engineering with a centralized control plane, operators can improve elasticity while maximizing resource utilization in the WAN that connects the distributed cloud.
The shift to software-defined networking (SDN) architecture for transport networks has given a new lease on life to the IP-over-optical solution that has been around for nearly two decades. Converging the IP and optical network layers to centralize network control is an excellent way to increase service velocity and lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for network operators.
Microwave will continue to be a major mobile backhaul medium, connecting around 50 percent of all radio sites in 2019. This report gives Ericsson's view of important aspects of microwave in backhaul networks including capacity needs and capabilities, spectrum, total cost of ownership, packet functionalities and service defined networks and how this will evolve towards 2020.
