Today’s telco business challenge is to transform the infrastructure backbone and become digital service providers beyond the traditional voice and data network infrastructure. Disaggregating the network by separating hardware from software is nothing new in the telco industry. The carrier’s strategy of transforming its network infrastructure is well underway and SD-WAN and universal CPE deployments have taken off over the last few years. The same business model now applies to other areas in the network infrastructure, not only those using Whitebox compute platforms with the optimal underlying open infrastructure deploying with tools available to support scalability.
This webinar will discuss:
- Service provider challenges deploying open disaggregated solutions in their networks
- Integration and transformational aspects integrating open, programmable solutions into the communications service providers current network infrastructure and greenfield deployments
- Underlying technologies that provide the toolset to implement disaggregated networks, including Intel DPDK and P4 programmability as a framework
- Use cases covering open, programmable infrastructure and total cost of ownership compared with traditional network elements
