The virtualization of Enterprise communications services represents both an opportunity and a challenge to CSPs.  This market segment is undergoing significant disruption.

With an abundance of new entrants in the virtualized connectivity space, the price-to-performance equation continues to tighten.  Service Providers must find ways to deliver the best service quality at increasingly competitive price points.

Analytics can be both a shield and a sword for Service Providers, enabling both better assurance and new differentiated data services for Enterprise customers.

Hybrid SD-WAN

Service Providers are defending lucrative Enterprise contracts from new entrants by augmenting MPLS services with SD-WAN and Virtual Network Functions (VNFs).

Virtual CPE

As appliance-based network functions get virtualized into VNFs, they are also being relocated to the Edge Cloud.
