[Strategy Analytics]: "Operators are beginning to see the huge potential for SDN"

A new report by Sue Rudd (pictured), Director Service Provider Analysis, Strategy Analytics predicts that "virtualization and Software Defined Networking (SDN) will shift mobile operator costs dramatically and accelerate service offerings in the coming decade .. Operators are beginning to see the huge potential for SDN beyond the Data Center - SDNs will extend across technologies, frequencies and protocols to deliver network services everywhere from anywhere. The immediate opportunity is IP routing for virtualized caching and storage followed by shared processing for the Radio Access Network (RAN) and load sharing for mobile backhaul, leading eventually to a virtualized network core".
