"CSPs should use SaaS-based solutions to simplify the management of their networks and deployments."


Communications service providers (CSPs) are looking for new ways to reduce their costs and the operational complexity of their network management systems. Vendors can help CSPs to fulfil these goals by expanding their solutions portfolios to include a SaaS deployment model, which CSPs can adopt to move their network control, orchestration and management systems to cloud-native, microservices-based delivery models.

Take-up of SaaS within the network automation and orchestration (NAO) segment has been low compared with other segments because CSPs have concerns about its viability for network-centric functions. Vendors should focus on demonstrating the viability of SaaS for IT-centric functions.
