No 5G without NFVi
Scale and performance requirements of 5G and IoT applications demand a different approach to digital infrastructure.
Software-defined infrastructure (SDI) provides the capability to control and configure compute, storage, and networking hardware from a central management platform. Check our video about the demo.
Telecom operators are in a good position to be part of the IoT value chain by utilizing their existing network assets. But one must go through a long checklist though to grab this opportunity. Utilizing micro-datacenters for current and new services is one of the checkboxes.
There are many who still question if this will really work and fulfill the promises of lower opex and shorter time to market for new services. Steve Saunders at Light Reading has described the NFV transformation as a disaster for the whole industry, where key values such as stable reliable networks based on standards have been forgotten.
