SDN is a new revolutionary approach towards designing, building and managing the next generation networks, which allows a logically centralised or distributed software program to control the behaviour of an entire network. This is a fundamental step towards achieving network programmability. There are great benefits to be reaped when IT-centric automation techniques are applied to the programmed network. This would result in delivering End-to-End services that are fully automated and orchestrated.
Automation & Orchestration allow operators to become more efficient, agile, and innovative. It will offer advanced dynamic services which require advanced network configuration and design so as to achieve the desired Quality of Experience (QoE), such as for dynamic network slicing to autonomous vehicles and critical IoT. In addition, Automation and Orchestration will allow the Telecom Operators to offer a revolutionary customer experience, E2E from ordering to fulfilment to troubleshooting, allowing them to increase their margins, decrease churn and introduce new business models.
Both Automation and Orchestration serve to transform the current networks towards Cognitive network operations and Zero-Touch Service & Network Management.
