Many telecom operators around the world are currently in the midst of transforming their data center environments. In response to an increasingly competitive landscape, they are deploying new technologies that they expect to provide benefits in terms of lowered costs and increased revenues. Over-the-top and cloud-based players are innovating at a rapid pace, and telecom operators are finding it difficult to compete using their existing infrastructure. Whereas in the past, data centers were used primarily to support internal functions, today they are being used to support end-user applications and content. NFV and SDN are emerging as critical technologies to help telecom operators operate more quickly and efficiently.
