Virtualizing Telco Networks
Achieve Genuine Innovation by Governing Your Data
02	INTRODUCTION
Build your virtualized
telecommunications network
with NetApp and you will
gain a proven carrier-grade
approach to data availability,
performance, security, and
management.
Removing the traditional network silos
The telecommunications industry has always depended on proprietary
hardware appliances. This has resulted in silos in which carriers have been
forced to unsustainably spend billions year after year. These silos have also
prevented carriers from innovating in line with market demand, anchoring
them to extremely long deployment cycles for new network services.
All of this has contributed to unbearable corporate debts and to a lack
of competitiveness towards over-the-top service companies.
Only now, communication service providers (CSPs) are
tackling this issue by virtualizing their telecommunications
networks and look into new software-defined and cloud-
like frameworks with network function virtualization (NFV).

10	CHALLENGES
1. Unproven products or solutions
The move to NFV and software-defined networks (SDN) confronts
carriers with a world of new products and solutions, and with an
increasing number of suppliers they can choose from. The solutions
available today are generally not mature enough because still in a
developing stage, and this lack of maturity is reported to be one of
the main inhibitors for the adoption of NFV by the carriers. Other
concerns address the complexity of end-to-end provisioning in both
virtual and physical worlds and the need to reskill the
telecommunications staff.
02
2. Unknown resource needs
All CSPs have one thing in common: They are often
completely in the dark when it comes to determining
the amounts of computing, networking, and storage
resources they will need to enable their network
transformation. Testing and implementing technologies
for NFV and SDN, and aligning everything to business
models, takes its time and often exceeds the forecasted
resources. What starts as a proof of concept is very
likely to evolve unforeseeably and dynamically. Carriers
are then forced to rearchitect their solutions on the fly
and risk increased costs.
11	CHALLENGES
3. Massive transformation
Carrier networks can consist of hundreds or even thousands of large
central offices (COs) and points of presence (PoPs). Turning to a NFV
infrastructure means to transform most of them into data centers of
adequate sizes and decide for either a centralized or a distributed NFV
use case deployment. Carriers will also need to make sure that their
platform of choice can provide redundancy across all locations to ensure
business continuity and to dynamically rearrange data allocation.
This part of the journey poses not only a massive task from a planning
perspective. It also means significant operational challenges before an
effective end-to-end management becomes real.
12	CHALLENGES
4. Operational challenges 1/2
The new NFV framework is mostly
about increased agility. However,
carriers need to ensure also that
the products or solutions they
deploy can live up to carrier-grade
levels. In a nutshell, deploying NFV
is not simply a matter of ripping
and replacing network hardware.
It requires a holistic view for a
process with many implications.
13	CHALLENGES
+	 Brings operational challenges in terms of relation-
	 ships and changes in physical and virtual worlds
+	 Needs to reflect the hierarchies in a distributed
	 multitier network
+	 Requires a fully virtualized and integrated infra-
	 structure stack to support carrier-grade reliability,
	 similar to the availability, performance, and quality
	 of service (QoS) of physical deployments
+	 Needs a totally new set of skills of the carrier staff
14	CHALLENGES
4. Operational challenges 2/2
5. Towards a DevOps model
The operational challenges outlined earlier
demand that carriers adopt a DevOps-oriented
organization. Only an ongoing and integrated
process of continuous development and
continuous deployment can deliver on the
agility promises of NFV and SDN. Only when
their developers and operators work hand in
hand, CSPs can innovate and adapt to customer
demands and market conditions much faster.
15	CHALLENGES

Importance of data management
in addressing these challenges
17	 DATA MANAGEMENT
Virtualization in general and NFV in particular brings
consolidation and choice especially in the hardware
arena. Coupled with commoditized hardware,
virtualization promises to reduce costs quickly, but
does not provide any added value by itself. What does
that mean for carriers? Whatever functions CSPs want
to virtualize they will need different resources in
different qualities and amounts to work properly and
meet QoS requirements. Depending on the use cases,
it is the data management that impacts the speed,
scalability, and availability of a service.
speed
scalability
availability
18	 DATA MANAGEMENT
Let’s have a look at a real-world scenario, a virtualized content delivery
network (CDN) to illustrate the value add of data management.
Basically, the virtualization of
CDN functions, including
analytics, policy management,
and on-net/off-net streaming,
is applicable to a NFV and SDN
deployment across the data
centers within a carrier network.
However, the biggest challenge
is to dynamically allocate
resources closer to the network
edge to optimize cost savings
and subscriber QoS. For this,
service providers will need a
management solution that
allows on-demand, scale-out
and scale-in resource caching at
peak hours. Only then it is
possible to achieve a superior
customer experience as well
as traffic optimization on
controller- and cache-node
level.
Importance of data management
in addressing these challenges
19	 DATA MANAGEMENT
Storage can become a bottleneck for several virtualized network
functions (VNFs) due to capacity and performance reasons.
CDN or deep packet inspection
requires a dynamic distribution across
a CSP’s network of COs and PoPs.
It is critical that every PoP can support
a storage-intensive VNF any time.
vCPE, vSTB, and more
need 10s of 1,000s instantiated virtual
machines (VMs) or containers. This applies
certainly to a mobile user environment and will
in general turn a small storage requirement
into a big one, where storage access
performance can become a major issue.
Storage-intensive VNFs Performance-intensive VNFs
Importance of data management
in addressing these challenges
Video streaming
is an example of a storage-intensive VNF
Considerations
A virtualized CDN can take advantage
of an NFV and SDN cloud-based
deployment across the carrier network
data centers.
Carriers need to dynamically allocate
resources closer to the network edge,
to optimize cost savings and QoS.
For this, service providers need a
storage management solution that allows
on-demand, scale-out and scale-in
caching resources at peak hours.

The NetApp value for CSPs:
Network meets the cloud
As outlined earlier, data mobility is a critical factor. Basically CSPs need
data mobility for two reasons. First, CSPs need to ensure data replication
between sites, including business continuity for their infrastructure.
Secondly, CSPs need to ensure that they can dynamically move network
functions and services from one CO or PoP to another. Altogether data
mobility across COs and PoPs becomes the enabler for service availability
and quality. The failure to ensure data availability and mobility will only
prevent silos to be completely removed from the carriersˇnetworks.
NetApp delivers on the promise of data mobility with its Data Fabric
strategy which allows data to be accessed where it is needed most. Data
Fabric delivers exactly on the needs of CSPs and enables them to innovate
and generate new revenue streams driven by new business models.

Virtualizing Telco Networks

  • 1. Virtualizing Telco Networks Achieve Genuine Innovation by Governing Your Data
  • 2. 02 INTRODUCTION Build your virtualized telecommunications network with NetApp and you will gain a proven carrier-grade approach to data availability, performance, security, and management.
  • 3. Removing the traditional network silos The telecommunications industry has always depended on proprietary hardware appliances. This has resulted in silos in which carriers have been forced to unsustainably spend billions year after year. These silos have also prevented carriers from innovating in line with market demand, anchoring them to extremely long deployment cycles for new network services. All of this has contributed to unbearable corporate debts and to a lack of competitiveness towards over-the-top service companies.
  • 4. Only now, communication service providers (CSPs) are tackling this issue by virtualizing their telecommunications networks and look into new software-defined and cloud- like frameworks with network function virtualization (NFV).
  • 5. New Business Models Matters as Much as Economics Embracing
  • 6. Choice Broader software ecosystem Economics Powerful for organizations with large networks Innovation No specialty hardware, more competition Savings Eliminate costly hardware upgrades Flexibility Do things faster by deploying new services as software-only
  • 7. 07 INTRODUCTION Solved Operational Challenges Effective end-to-end management within Data Fabric enabled by NetApp®. Gained Service Availability Unlimited data mobility across sites for business continuity and sustained service quality. Accelerated Transformation Leverage cloud partner know-how and ready-to-apply solutions. Reduced Risks Proven real-world deployments of infrastructures for NFV and SDN. Key Benefits with NetApp

Unproven products or solutions The move to NFV and software-defined networks (SDN) confronts carriers with a world of new products and solutions, and with an increasing number of suppliers they can choose from. The solutions available today are generally not mature enough because still in a developing stage, and this lack of maturity is reported to be one of the main inhibitors for the adoption of NFV by the carriers. Other concerns address the complexity of end-to-end provisioning in both virtual and physical worlds and the need to reskill the telecommunications staff.
  • 11. 02 2. Unknown resource needs All CSPs have one thing in common: They are often completely in the dark when it comes to determining the amounts of computing, networking, and storage resources they will need to enable their network transformation. Testing and implementing technologies for NFV and SDN, and aligning everything to business models, takes its time and often exceeds the forecasted resources. What starts as a proof of concept is very likely to evolve unforeseeably and dynamically. Carriers are then forced to rearchitect their solutions on the fly and risk increased costs. 11 CHALLENGES
  • 12. 3. Massive transformation Carrier networks can consist of hundreds or even thousands of large central offices (COs) and points of presence (PoPs). Turning to a NFV infrastructure means to transform most of them into data centers of adequate sizes and decide for either a centralized or a distributed NFV use case deployment. Carriers will also need to make sure that their platform of choice can provide redundancy across all locations to ensure business continuity and to dynamically rearrange data allocation. This part of the journey poses not only a massive task from a planning perspective. It also means significant operational challenges before an effective end-to-end management becomes real. 12 CHALLENGES
  • 13. 4. Operational challenges 1/2 The new NFV framework is mostly about increased agility. However, carriers need to ensure also that the products or solutions they deploy can live up to carrier-grade levels. In a nutshell, deploying NFV is not simply a matter of ripping and replacing network hardware. It requires a holistic view for a process with many implications. 13 CHALLENGES
  • 14. + Brings operational challenges in terms of relation- ships and changes in physical and virtual worlds + Needs to reflect the hierarchies in a distributed multitier network + Requires a fully virtualized and integrated infra- structure stack to support carrier-grade reliability, similar to the availability, performance, and quality of service (QoS) of physical deployments + Needs a totally new set of skills of the carrier staff 14 CHALLENGES 4. Operational challenges 2/2
  • 15. 5. Towards a DevOps model The operational challenges outlined earlier demand that carriers adopt a DevOps-oriented organization. Only an ongoing and integrated process of continuous development and continuous deployment can deliver on the agility promises of NFV and SDN. Only when their developers and operators work hand in hand, CSPs can innovate and adapt to customer demands and market conditions much faster. 15 CHALLENGES
  • 16. Data Management Data in NFV cloud- based environments Page 16
  • 17. Importance of data management in addressing these challenges 17 DATA MANAGEMENT Virtualization in general and NFV in particular brings consolidation and choice especially in the hardware arena. Coupled with commoditized hardware, virtualization promises to reduce costs quickly, but does not provide any added value by itself. What does that mean for carriers? Whatever functions CSPs want to virtualize they will need different resources in different qualities and amounts to work properly and meet QoS requirements. Depending on the use cases, it is the data management that impacts the speed, scalability, and availability of a service. speed scalability availability
  • 18. 18 DATA MANAGEMENT Let’s have a look at a real-world scenario, a virtualized content delivery network (CDN) to illustrate the value add of data management. Basically, the virtualization of CDN functions, including analytics, policy management, and on-net/off-net streaming, is applicable to a NFV and SDN deployment across the data centers within a carrier network. However, the biggest challenge is to dynamically allocate resources closer to the network edge to optimize cost savings and subscriber QoS. For this, service providers will need a management solution that allows on-demand, scale-out and scale-in resource caching at peak hours. Only then it is possible to achieve a superior customer experience as well as traffic optimization on controller- and cache-node level. Importance of data management in addressing these challenges
  • 19. 19 DATA MANAGEMENT Storage can become a bottleneck for several virtualized network functions (VNFs) due to capacity and performance reasons. CDN or deep packet inspection requires a dynamic distribution across a CSP’s network of COs and PoPs. It is critical that every PoP can support a storage-intensive VNF any time. vCPE, vSTB, and more need 10s of 1,000s instantiated virtual machines (VMs) or containers. This applies certainly to a mobile user environment and will in general turn a small storage requirement into a big one, where storage access performance can become a major issue.

  • 20. Video streaming is an example of a storage-intensive VNF Considerations A virtualized CDN can take advantage of an NFV and SDN cloud-based deployment across the carrier network data centers. Carriers need to dynamically allocate resources closer to the network edge, to optimize cost savings and QoS. For this, service providers need a storage management solution that allows on-demand, scale-out and scale-in caching resources at peak hours. 2015 2016 2017 2018 x 6 x 24 x 13 Capacity and Performance Requirements 20 DATA MANAGEMENT

  • 27. Network & Cloud Network meets cloud: NetApp value to CSPs Page 27
  • 28. 26 CLOUD & NETWORK The NetApp value for CSPs: Network meets the cloud As outlined earlier, data mobility is a critical factor. Basically CSPs need data mobility for two reasons. First, CSPs need to ensure data replication between sites, including business continuity for their infrastructure. Secondly, CSPs need to ensure that they can dynamically move network functions and services from one CO or PoP to another. Altogether data mobility across COs and PoPs becomes the enabler for service availability and quality. The failure to ensure data availability and mobility will only prevent silos to be completely removed from the carriersˇnetworks. NetApp delivers on the promise of data mobility with its Data Fabric strategy which allows data to be accessed where it is needed most. Data Fabric delivers exactly on the needs of CSPs and enables them to innovate and generate new revenue streams driven by new business models. 28 NETWORK & CLOUD
