With the exponential growth of subscribers and connected devices, service providers have been investing in infrastructure to support increasing traffic growth while implementing new services to attract new subscribers and increase revenue. This white paper provides an overview of the various components that are required for a complete CGNAT and IPv6 migration solution, which encompass the entire lifecycle of the transition to IPv6.
Even as it continues to expand, the business services market is rapidly changing. Driven by pressure on enterprises to transform their operations to become more agile and economic and take advantage of cloud based services, large and small companies alike are now seeking to leverage more than just the basic data, voice and video services of yesteryear.
Onboarding VNFs into a hybrid (mix of legacy and cloud) networking domain and then managing a combination of existing and virtual assets (and being able to bill for the resulting services) has proven to be a massive challenge. This report looks at how these headwinds can be overcome en route to a brighter virtualization future.
This paper examines the movement of IT from on-premise datacenters to the cloud and the service provider opportunities related to this shift. It also examines the role that storage technology vendor NetApp plays in this market transition.
For cloud service providers and managed service providers who want to quickly and easily deliver a dedicated hosted private cloud to your customer, Managed EdgeCloud is the solution.

This application note summarizes the benefits and considerations for CSPs who plan to offer dynamic network connectivity services and describes how the Nokia Network Services Platform (NSP) carrier software-defined networking (SDN) platform can be used to evolve CSP networks to enable on-demand service capabilities faster, more profitably and at a great scale than ever before.
As NFV technologies mature, CSPs are realising that delivering VNFs via customer premises equipment makes just as much commercial sense as the ‘pure NFV’ vision of device consolidation in data centers and at the network edge. In this white paper, Pravin Mirchandani, CMO, OneAccess Networks, explains why the industry’s focus has shifted as the first wave of NFV deployments begin to take shape.
Just as white-box switches have transcended the traditional top-of-rack business model for customers demanding greater service flexibility and easier provisioning, enterprise customers are demanding more flexible, open, and cloud-based WAN technologies.
This paper describes how Intel® Open Networking Platform (Intel® ONP) Server running on innovative new networking platforms can help reduce the cost and effort required for service providers and vendors to adopt and deploy SDN and NFV architectures.
The new network infrastructure is flexible, modular and open. A strong ecosystem ensures that white boxes, OS, middleware and VNFs work together in a multi-vendor environment where early access to new technology accelerates next generation roll-outs.
This paper describes a micro-datacenter-in-a-box, built to improve subscriber quality of experience and enable more RAN-aware services with capabilities that optimize the hosting of latency-sensitive functions and applications at the mobile edge.
Cloud service delivery models are changing enterprises’ service expectations. In the past enterprises signed on to a multiyear contract for fixed bandwidth capacity at a fixed price. Traditional business processes used to plan, build, and operate network infrastructure; however, there are obstacles to implementation of such an on-demand model.
To thrive in the cloud era of networking, operators need to evolve to on-demand service delivery and automated network operations models.
Carrier software-defined networking (SDN) has evolved greatly since Google first showed that SDN in the wide-area network (WAN) was possible, with its B4 WAN introduced in 2012.
In this document, Appledore Research Group looks at the importance of automation in virtualized networks, and the new and important role that this creates for Assurance – with a broad definition of Assurance.
There is no shortage of challenges for organizations trying to manage wide-area networks (WANs) today, largely due to ongoing changes in the IT enterprise. The growing use of cloud-based computing and storage for applications is driving the need for networks that are more dynamic and flexible.
The use of Software Defined Networking (SDN) in the datacenter has resolved the issues with application and workload placement but this hasn’t reduced the complexity of delivering the application to users across the wide area. To extend the dynamism of the cloud to remote employees, enterprises across the globe are looking at Software Defined Wide Area Networking (SDWAN) as the foundation for the future evolution of wide area networking.
One of the customers of Nuage Networks is an independent oil and gas exploration and production company with both global offshore and onshore assets. The company produces oil and natural gas in the United States, Canada and Malaysia and conducts exploration activities worldwide. This case study documents the business drivers and benefits for adopting the Nuage Networks Virtualized Network Services (VNS) solution for SD-WAN.
Exponential-e, already a customer for Nuage Networks datacenter SDN solution, has chosen the Nuage Networks Virtualized Network Services (VNS) platform to accelerate the provisioning of WAN services and incorporate remote sites using both Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) and broadband Internet.
