Network Virtualization Solutions

The Elements of the Next Generation Network

The next generation network includes three well-known groups that can be combined, rationalized, and reconciled seamlessly.

Business-oriented Networks

Business applications often have unique network requirements for public, private, and on-premise clouds, as well as network elements in the field. For example:

  • The manufacturing sector and its supporting devices often require reliability and simultaneous connection capacity.
  • The retailing sector needs security, scalability, and geographical coverage.
  • The healthcare sector depends on tolerance and broad bandwidth.

The next generation business-oriented network must be capable of establishing a closed network that meets respective industry, or vertical, requirements.

Virtual Resource and Network Functions

Network functions, servers, and edge compute resources can be virtualized to support automation, orchestration, and optimization.

  • Guaranteed Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for network slices
  • Optimized resource allocation
  • Closed-loop feedback and analysis that uses artificial intelligence to take appropriate action and remediation.

Physical Networks

To provide end-to-end service provisioning, network automation, orchestration, and network slicing, the physical network layer must have the following characteristics:

  • High scalability
  • Open and standardized control plane interfaces that supports multi-vendor hardware interoperability
  • Functionally disaggregated architecture for on-demand hardware additions and upgrades
  • Open and standardized APIs for network slicing and network orchestration
