Network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) promise more flexibility and scalability in the network, including better bandwidth allocation and a more expedient response to application and resource requirements. Enabling agile services requires proper integration of service assurance tools with orchestration. This new reality creates the need for improved analytics capabilities that can derive insights from data collected from various sources within the network, providing the control plane with the information necessary to make optimal decisions. This webinar discusses how analytics tools with integrated service assurance are addressing new app and resource requirements in todays NFV and SDN world.
