Your Network is a Cloud - Manage it as Software
New categories of players entering the telco space are accelerating the pace of transformation. Greenfield entrants to the telco space are a massive threat to the incumbent telcos because they are poised to apply the webscale playbook approach to networks. Existing telco network practices follow waterfall processes that progress sluggishly. Accordingly, it is more important than ever to unlock the acceleration of agile transformation.
Applying the Software Development Life Cycle to telco networks by extending Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) pipelines) into production and introducing Continuous Validation and Continuous Assurance is the key to achieving innovation at a scale and velocity never seen before.
