Beyond its ability to immediately provide data when needed in the transparent form of customized dashboards, the impact of real-time analytics can be seen in the ways that companies are using it in recent product announcements.

Real-time analytics provides the boost some companies need to expand outside their traditional business lines. (See 8x8 Creates UC, Collaboration Cloud.)

It also is used for things like beefing up storage at the edge of the network, as enterprises look to maximize applications requiring low latency and high performance. (See Equinix Taking Storage to the Edge.)

Likewise, it's being used to support Internet of Things initiatives, as it grows into a more competitive arena for cloud providers. (See Oracle Beefs Up IoT Cloud.)

Already, there are a number of companies and products featured in Virtuapedia that include real-time analytics, with a few standouts such as:

  • Sandvine Network Analytics, designed for converged-access communication service providers (CSPs), can break down audio and video statistics in real time according to number of views, media duration and quality of experience (QoE), as well as different views, such as content provider and region.

  • Smart Traffic Collector from Vedicis is deep-packet inspection and real-time analytics software that turns IP broadband traffic into insight and actionable events for marketing and network analytics.

  • The VirtualWisdom platform from Virtual Instruments provides insights into the performance and availability of infrastructure across physical, virtual and cloud environments.

    More than 1,500 companies and 1,600 products are now listed in Virtuapedia, making it the telecom industry’s most comprehensive resource for all things related to virtualization. Some 13,000 network professionals also are now registered with Virtuapedia, giving them access not only to vendor and product information but also to the latest industry news and research from Heavy Reading.

    The shift to application and network virtualization by operators and CSPs requires a new generation of multicore processors that are being introduced by many vendors.
    In the wake of a damaging cyber attack in 2015, Philip Clayson was tasked with creating a cyber breach remediation plan for over 600 applications across TalkTalk's consumer and enterprise divisions and to deal with the operator's 'tech debt.'
    It's still hard to say whether carrier SDN is really a success or a failure, but the needle is moving on SDN commercialization – albeit not as quickly as some might hope.
    The most recent Thought Leadership Council (TLC) survey finds that although most communications service providers (CSPs) prefer to have a solid plan in place before moving on a new market trend, it's not looking to be the same for automation, as most CSPs surveyed say they are moving forward without solid plans.
    Software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) is the primary focus for cable in 2018, with fierce competition across the market.

    A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
