Virtualization in Telecommunications

Cloud and virtualization have become critical in achieving the agility needed to take on new over-the-top telco players.

Network Function Virtualization (NFV)

For every telco, network agility is a prerequisite for sustainable success. Operators able to instantly scale capacity and performance to demand will take the lead. Operators must be able to personalize their networks, delivering winning new products and services ahead of the competition and achieving a stand-out position in customer satisfaction.

Atos has joined forces with leading NFV experts from Dell EMC, Intel, Juniper, Red Hat and VMware to create the Atos NFV Lab, a center of worldwide business and technical excellence.

Working with the NFV Lab experts, you will benefit from proven business acceleration techniques including agile development; continuous integration; and sprint cycles.

Perhaps most importantly, you will be able to draw on a growing Atos repository of use-cases – real world instances of virtualized functions which are robust and ready-to-go.
