As the communications industry barrels toward major new technologies like AI, 5G, IoT, and cloud everywhere, service providers globally are presented with both a great opportunity and an immense challenge. To survive and thrive, providers need to adapt to unforeseen growth and emerging use cases that are radically changing how organizations connect to partners, data centers, and end users.
Digital transformation is key to adapting to ever-changing market conditions, technologies, and customer demands. Transformation allows providers to break free of the legacy manual business processes that inhibit their ability to innovate.
While digital transformation is the end goal, achieving it requires radical changes to the way providers currently operate. Intelligent, software-based network automation and intent-based networking are key to overcoming legacy technology and process challenges—and vital to accelerating the journey to the self-governing, self-healing networks of the future.
