Etisalat believes “SDN/NFV driven network transformation” is by far the most disruptive technology for telecom service providers, which eventually will transform all key aspects of networks and operations. Ironically, at the same time, fast emerging ICT ecosystem necessitates it to be adapted at a faster rate than its predecessors. Hence this has been considered while charting out our virtualization journey plan.
“SDN, NFV and Orchestration are the key pillars to address future technological challenges for telcos and hence Etisalat has initiated number of trials and limited deployments for various aspects of the network to benefit from these opportunities.Telcos have aggressive plans to adopt the strategy of “Whatever can be virualised will be virtualised
