NFV adoption to transform telecommunications infrastructure

Communications Service Providers (CSPs), including wire line, wireless, and cable providers, need to
innovate to keep up with the competitive pressure of the rapidly changing network environment. As more
of the value (and revenues) flow to over-the-top service providers like Google and Amazon, CSPs face the
prospect of increasingly becoming providers of commodity-like transport services. At the same time, the
huge growth in traffic driven by video, mobile, and cloud usage is overwhelming current networks,
forcing CSPs to spend heavily in new equipment just to keep up with bandwidth demand.
