Session Description

This presentation will explain how LSO is the critical enabler of automated and virtualized networks built with SDN and NFV. Currently, service providers need LSO capabilities and supporting API to overcome OSS and BSS obstacles that prevent them from realizing the full benefits of emerging SDN & NFV technologies.  LSO encompasses all network domains that require coordinated inter-operator end-to-end management and control to deliver on-demand cloud connectivity services and to assure their overall quality and security.

  • Enterprise business drivers for on-demand, agile, automated, cloud-connected connectivity services
  • Enabling services innovation by leveraging the global Carrier Ethernet services footprint, adding LSO (Lifecycle Services Orchestration), SDN and NFV
  • Dynamic services development: Not a greenfield play – protecting investments through a practical roadmap
  • LSO and the pending impact on operator wholesale businesses
