Where’s The Future Of Telecoms Going?
Join ECI® and others at MPLS+SDN+NFV World Congress in Paris to find out.
The 18th MPLS+SDN+NFV World Congress is set to take place March 8-11th, at the Marriott River Gauche in Paris—and ECI will be there.
With more than 1500 expected participants from 65 countries, the 18th World Congress is poised to be the largest international conference on issues related to the future of telecoms. The 2016 agenda will focus on: What is left of NFV? What can’t we do with MPLS?
Let us be the first to provide an answer to some of these issues with our ELASTIC Network solutions tailored for service providers.
Better Service + More Revenue with ECI’s ELASTIC Networks
In our latest whitepaper, Real Revenues from Virtualized Services, we outlined the challenges facing communication service providers (CSPs). Specifically, modern customers increasingly bypass traditional service providers, and instead run email, video, and storage from the cloud. On the other hand, service providers’ are finding it difficult to generate new revenue streams, thus constantly looking for new solutions to support new services. Many service providers are trying to beat the OTT’s at their own game, but most are failing.
The answer? Rather than take on the ‘Goliaths’ in their own court, leverage your strengths to improve your game.
ECI’s ELASTIC networks will help turn your network into a ‘dynamic service platform’ which will enable you to offer more services, more quickly and simply. This opens up new sources of revenue, creates more loyal customer relationships, and makes innovative solutions for clients’ most pressing demands —both today and in the future.
With Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) turn-up of services will become faster. The networks of the future will become fully customizable, with pay-as-you-go options rather than a preset list of features. Clients will decide when they want, or can afford, more services from an a la carte menu and pay for almost instant access, allowing businesses to grow at their own pace.
The most exciting part? ELASTIC Networks are not a rigid, unchanging monolith like networks of the past. They are a living creature—one that can adapt to the changing needs of industries and CSPS of the future.
SDN-NFV networks provide the framework for CSPs to develop more practical and beneficial relationships with their clients. CSPs will have the opportunity to work with their customers to target challenges currently facing industries such as banking, healthcare, retail, and research. CSPs will be able to offer clients vertical applications customized for their business based on a few dynamic service offerings—definable CPE, dynamic VPN, managed security, and dynamic bandwidth.
Imagine a time where you may be able to provide a specific retailer:
- Extra bandwidth for high-volume sales events
- Continuous inventory monitoring
- Secure supplier connections
As your clients evolve, they will be able to utilize more services, while CSPs will secure lasting relationships by continuously customizing services to fit the rapidly changing needs of those customers. The result is more loyal customers and growth in top-line revenues and bottom-line profits.
