"Network telemetry provides real-time network performance data, thereby allowing CSPs to react quickly, predict service quality degradations and drive closed-loop network automation."
Enterprises are increasingly demanding real-time, always-on digital services with guaranteed quality. To meet this demand, communications service provider (CSPs) are deploying advanced software-defined and virtualised networks that increase service agility and real-time control.
This report provides:
- the context for why traditional network monitoring techniques are insufficient for new-generation networks
- an explanation of why should CSPs consider network telemetry (NT) for real-time network monitoring and predictive operations
- recommendations for CSPs on what factors they should consider when operationalising NT
- a summary of the key vendors providing NT technology.
