The network as digital infrastructure: a reality check

Caroline Chappell Research Director

Caroline Chappell, Research Director, presented these slides at Analysys Mason's sixth annual invitation-only event in London on Thursday 4 October 2018. This event was designed to help operators and vendors to understand the key drivers and trends that are influencing the telecoms, media and technology (TMT) industry in Europe.

The presentation includes:

  • a demostration that the European market is making progress on NFV/SDN
  • an explanation of the contribution that WAN SDN is making to network automation, both of which support NFV
  • a warning that network virtualisation is increasing competition in key connectivity and enterprise services markets.
