NFV/SDN Business cases: Prioritise vCPE-enabled Services and VoLTE/vIMS; then Video and IoT Services
Published: February 12, 2016 Content info: 42 Slides
Description

"Successful NFV/SDN business cases must be underpinned by a services-based use case perspective, rather than a VNF (virtual network function) view."

NFV and SDN technologies are maturing, but their business value is not well-quantified or understood by the industry. This report analyses the business case benefits for network function virtualisation (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) that can be achieved through a services-based approach, rather than a virtual network function (VNF) approach. The report provides quantifiable business case outputs for:

  • virtual customer premises equipment- (vCPE-) enabled enterprise and residential services, and
  • VoLTE voice services using virtualised IMS (vIMS) rather than a physical IMS deployment with call continuity.

We explain why video services could drive the next wave of NFV and SDN business cases, followed by IoT and M2M services. We provide recommendations for communications service providers (CSPs) and suppliers actively involved in NFV and SDN deployments.

This report also:

  • discusses the reasons why it is good to be a first-mover CSP with a vCPE solution
  • examines how OSS automation for order-to-cash (O2C) processes can offer strategic cost savings to help drive additional revenue.
