Digital service providers are driving the transformation at the heart of today’s Digital World. As they work to realize the promise of that transformation, communications service providers (CSPs) are pursuing an accelerated phase-out of legacy networks in favor of a new network that will enable them to operate in tomorrow’s disaggregated world, with its plenitude of players.
To realize the full benefit of that transformation, network operations will need to shift to a software paradigm and software operating models. And this shift will require unique new skills, including new ways of designing, building and operating software networks in the cloud, and a shift in budgeting and monetization models from CAPEX-intensive, hardware-based infrastructure to OPEX-focused, software-based models.
