The critical role of NFV orchestration for SD-WAN services

  1. 1. SD-WAN orchestrated by Amdocs
  2. 2. What is software-defined wide area network? SD-WAN determines the most cost-effective and efficient way to route enterprise traffic to remote locations over ubiquitous broadband and traditional IP/MPLS
  3. 3. MPLS dedicated connectivity Expensive Internet Connectivity SD-WAN High performance 3 months Cost efficient Quality not guaranteed 1 week Reduced cost per Mbps High performance through traffic offload & MPLS Fast deployment through broadband and automation best-efforts internet Say $300-600/Mbps per month Say $2-15/Mbps per month Combines the best of MPLS and Broadband
  4. 4. SD-WAN fundamentally changes the economics of enterprise services Retain & acquire customers Reduce CAPEX Reduce OPEX Generate new revenues MPLS Internet +
  5. 5. Retain & acquire customers MPLS Internet + Flexibility through Hybrid Network & SD-WAN Retain customer, eliminate risk of lost revenue
  6. 6. Reduce CAPEX Commodity hardware Move to low cost, white box appliances
  7. 7. Reduce OPEX Zero-touch provisioning & software agility Instant deployment Self-service Elimination of truck rolls
  8. 8. Generate new revenues Security and apps Revenue upside potential per customer
  9. 9. OPERATE What is needed?
