Building a pervasive network

OVERVIEW

WE ARE ENTERING AN INNOVATION RENAISSANCE

As technology advances at exponential speeds and the number of connected devices, from clothing to appliances to cars to homes, increases, communications service providers (CSPs) can become digital businesses if they capture the power of the Pervasive Network.:

Pervasive computing combines existing network technologies with new and emerging technologies, such as 5G, software-defined networking (SDN), network function virtualization (NFV), artificial intelligence (AI), robotic process automation (RPA) and blockchain.


THE GOAL?

Create an environment where the connectivity of devices is embedded in such a way that the connectivity is unobtrusive and always available.

Despite progress, the communications industry continues to face challenges in making the Pervasive Network a reality. To succeed in this new environment, CSPs must pursue transformation across four dimensions:

  • Migrate from the legacy network

  • Launch software-driven services

  • Transform the operating model,

  • Deliver communications services using an agile, over-the-top approach.
