Leveraging open applications for optical network transformation
Tim Doiron, Principal Analyst at ACG Research, describes the drivers, benefits and market applicability of the WaveSuite software solution.
Read this whitepaper to learn how optical network operators can leverage open networking initiatives to provide a simplified, abstracted network allowing them to monetize their networks and speed-up the deployment of services.
Why today’s challenges and opportunities create complexity and risk for utilities
How better and faster data analysis can help utilities mitigate complexity and risk
Steps that utilities can take to implement asset analytics and digitalize their operations
Why utilities should start their digital transformation now
Optical network operators are transitioning to open networks based on Software Defined Networking (SDN) to make their networks more efficient and agile for new services creation. To do this they need to automate operations and acquire better insight into their optical networks to turn on services faster, with lower cost. They also need to monetize their network by broadening their customer-base with attractive new services without allocating resources and money to expensive and time-consuming back-office upgrades and software integration.
Leveraging their in-depth optical networking market experience and consultation with optical network operators, ACG Research assesses the applicability of new approaches for optical network virtualization, and Nokia’s WaveSuite open software vision, which supports the creation of new services and business opportunities in open optical environments, deploying services supporting equipment quickly and optimizing the network performance to efficiently support services.
