Mobile SDN: The Future is Virtual
Produced in association with Juniper Networks

As data services continue to penetrate the mass market, mobile operators have found out that new, third parties have entered the market where they previously were the only service enabler. Operators are saying that they are being disintermediated from service delivery and being relegated to access-only providers.

However, LTE and Software Defined Networks (SDN) are two key technologies that can help operators reposition themselves to become service providers yet again and operate truly flexible, service-oriented data networks. After all, bandwidth is a precious commodity while capacity and coverage are becoming bargaining chips for the mobile operators while SDN is the next step.
