Leveraging software and virtualization, operators cloud offload a lot of the heavy lifting from the network and in turn reduce costs, launch new services and create new revenue streams.

As SDN and NFV mature, there has been a learning curve and a few hurdles. The forecast is good, however, for service providers willing to ride out the storm.

“So what’s the forecast? Conditions will improve – of that there’s little doubt. Will that happen fast enough? For some, yes, yet maybe not for all. But the sun’s breaking through the telco cloud for sure – just make sure you’re basking in the light,” wrote Ray Le Maistre, Light Reading Editor-in-Chief, in his intro letter to Light Reading’s SDN/NFV: Market Update ebook, sponsored by A10 Networks.
