A FierceTelecom eBrief HOW SERVICES VIRTUALIZATION IS EATING THE WORLD June 2017 7 "Next comes utilizing micro services and containers for needed agility and scale, along with organizational changes, he concludes. "e result is a transformed operations, network and business environment for the service provider. ey are then very competitive for IoT and 5G, against both web-scale and communications service providers, because of the improvements in their efficiency, operability, scalability and agility." Wheelus states that AT&T's network cloud platform using ONAP is a foundation for innovation and development of new services. "IoT and 5G will evolve more quickly by using these capabilities to create the distributed processing capabilities that are needed for the real time applications that IoT and 5G will enable, like autonomous cars and augmented reality. Delivering new and enhanced virtualized functions and services on our network cloud platform is not constrained by the physical hardware development cycle, so time to market is greatly reduced," she states. As to what the need is for high performance open SDN switching equipment, with features and capabilities to rapidly integrate and interwork with NFV architectures for dynamic, agile delivery of advanced services today, including 5G and the IoT, Wheelus states: "Using opensourced software and open standard interoperable hardware in a highly secure software defined network is table stakes for the future. "e industry and data demand are moving at a pace that cannot wait for specialized proprietary hardware solutions. Having the capabilities to rapidly integrate new technologies via software and open standards will help drive innovative new services and reduce the barriers that having to deploy new hardware creates," Wheelus concludes. l
