Solutions for Service Providers

Network disaggregation, the pillar of hyperscale data centers, is now a reality for Service Providers who are embracing SDN and open hardware to achieve their goals as it addresses some of fundamental problems within this domain where typically the networks have been built over decades using a multitude of different and complex proprietary equipment.

AT&T, Deutsche Telecom, Verizon, Telefonica, NTT and other Tier 1s are already well on their way to network disaggregation. It is now the turn of 2nd and 3rd tier ISPs and Service providers to reap the benefits of the solid foundations that have been laid by the backbone providers.
