The Carrier Ethernet market is evolving from static connectivity services toward dynamic "Third Network" services that provide an on-demand, assured, and secure experience with user-directed control over network resources and cloud connectivity. To assess the impact of this transition, the MEF recently worked with Vertical Systems Group on a new study, "Dynamic ‘Third Network’ Connectivity Services Enabled By LSO, SDN & NFV", that involved a global survey of service providers, technology vendors, and other industry professionals.
This webinar will cover key findings from the survey and also includes additional insight gained from real-world service provider experiences in offering dynamic network services. Among other things, we will explore:
-How and when revenue-generating dynamic services will impact the market
-The drivers, benefits, and challenges of deploying dynamic services
-Available & planned dynamic capabilities that customers can control on their own networks, and
-The role and relative importance that LSO, SDN & NFV will play alongside CE 2.0 in driving the market forward.
