Research and Markets: Software Defined Networks (SDN): Challenges, Opportunities, and Outlook for Carrier Networks 2014-2019

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/bfmhfx/software_defined) has announced the addition of the "Software Defined Networks (SDN): Challenges, Opportunities, and Outlook for Carrier Networks" report to their offering.

Software-defined networking (SDN) is an approach to computer networking that allows network administrators to manage network services through abstraction of lower level functionality. However, it is much more to telecom as SDN has the potential to transform the carriers by improving the ability of network operators to provide applications, services, feature/functionality and bandwidth in an on-demand basis.

Furthermore, SDN it can help virtualize carrier networks and connect the subscriber base with functions, mobility, content, analytics, security, flow-control, optimization, etc. This research evaluates SDN technology, companies, solutions, and market outlook. It also provides insights into SDN in carrier networks and the prospects and advantages of deployment models uniquely suited to their needs and anticipated business models.

Report Benefits:

  • Forecasts for SDN 2014 - 2019
  • SDN companies and solutions analysis
  • Understand SDN implementation issues
  • Identify key drivers for SDN in carrier networks
  • Understand SDN development environment and APIs
  • Identify early SDN opportunity areas for network operators
  • Understand the role and importance of network function virtualization
  • Understand the relationship between SDN, virtualization, and the Cloud

Key Findings:

  • Certain vendors offer key solutions for carriers
  • Wireless carriers have a critical role in the value chain
  • Carriers will initially focus on Southbound APIs and switch fabric
  • SDN and virtualization will enable IMS optimization and realization of investment
  • By 2016, carriers will focus more on Northbound API and create full development environment
  • SDN represents a substantial opportunity for carriers by 2019, especially those focused on NFV

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
Bill Schmarzo, Tech Chair of "Big Data | Analytics" of upcoming CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York (November 12-13, 2018, New York City) today announced the outline and schedule of the track. "The track has been designed in experience/degree order," said Schmarzo. "So, that folks who attend the entire track can leave the conference with some of the skills necessary to get their work done when they get back to their offices. It actually ties back to some work that I'm doing at the University of San...
CloudEXPO New York 2018, colocated with DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.

Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
