“Service orchestration platforms are critical for telecom operators as they migrate legacy operations towards a virtualized world,” said RCR Wireless News Editor-In-Chief Dan Meyer.

RCR Wireless News spoke with more than a dozen companies, including telecom operators AT&T and CenturyLink; vendors like Ixia, JDSU, Sonus, Hewlett-Packard and WebNMS; and industry analyst firms Wireless 20/20, Analysys Mason and Infonetics to gain deep insight into the current service orchestration market. The report, entitled “Orchestrating the virtualized telecom future” contains vital takeaways including how service orchestration fits into the new virtualized environment, how the market is developing service orchestration platforms to fit the unique characteristics of telecom operators and challenges facing development plans. These efforts are going to be further challenged as telecom operators aggressively move to deploy virtualized platforms without hindering current operations.
