COVID-19 has heightened the need for digital transformation and is accelerating its mainstream adoption to support IoT, virtualization, campus networks and the rollout of 5G. To ensure success in the aftermath of the global pandemic and remain competitive in a digital world, telecoms must increase bandwidth to support large-scale remote workforces, implement hybrid infrastructure management for greater visibility into digital infrastructure, integrate GIS capabilities to improve operational efficiency and utilize digital twins with the proper integration framework in place for equipment planning as well as service designing and assurance.
Carrier networks are constantly being challenged. From the emergence of social media and specifically short-form video apps such as TikTok, to the bandwidth implications of work from home initiatives and virtual classrooms as a result of COVID-19, the only certainty is change itself.
As advancements in technology accelerate, carriers must quickly adapt to a changing ecosystem. From mobile 5G and fiber rollouts to network transformation and automation, significant change drivers are at play in the market that intensify the need for carriers to evolve their infrastructure. Doing so is vital to enable the Future Mode of Operation (FMO) of both physical and virtualized networks and services.
In part two of our blog post series, we discussed the four key requirements of a resource management solution and how to manage implementation costs. In part three, we’ll share how to prevent vendor lock-in and how to remain competitive among digital transformation.
To keep pace with competitors, IoT and the rise of edge computing – network transformation is mission critical. However, as modern networks are highly complex, this transformation has the potential to be a time-consuming and costly process. From FTTA and C-RAN architecture upgrades, to laying fiber and connecting BBU pool resources to the core network, there are countless steps that must be taken to ensure data is properly transported over mobile networks to geographically dispersed users.
