Using NFV And Big Data To Unlock Network Value

Find out at Interop New York how SDN, NFV, and data analytics can be used to streamline network operations and create new value.

Ben Parker, Principal Technologist at Guavus, will present the session “Unlocking the Network Operational Environment of the Future” at the 2014 Interop New York conference.

Guavus is a tech company focused on using big data and analytics technologies to solve their clients’ problems, thereby maximizing capital efficiency and customer satisfaction while reducing the cost of network operations.

Clark Buckner with TechnologyAdvice spoke with Parker about his Interop presentation, the challenges his industry faces today, the strategies his company uses to alleviate pain points, and the future of big data and analytics.

In his upcoming presentation at Interop, Parker will speak about the role of software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) in wireless operators’ network architectures.

He’ll cover how to use SDN and NFV to streamline deployment and operations, as well as how to use advanced analytic techniques to quickly identify problems to prevent services from suffering degradation.

He’ll also share use cases for combining SDN, NFV and Big Data to optimize and monetize wireless operators’ networks.

While adding elements of virtualization to a network can make it easier to deploy network services, they can also quickly become complex and expensive. And organizations must put significant effort into on testing, deploying components, and ensuring that failover mechanisms work.

With the use of virtual network analytics, companies can monitor real-time data from the network, compute, storage, applications and other sources, and examine those data to react more quickly to potential problems or outright failures.

Guavus’s technology is based on a software appliance that collects data from multiple sources. It removes unnecessary information, and then analyzes the data to present actionable insights to network operators.

Great applications
I look forward to hearing more of your interviews. Seeing successful applications of data analysis is positive for all the players within the big data field. It's successes that build buy-in, add confidence and lead to continued evolution. According to a recent SAS survey its process optimization that tows the line as the number one objective for investing in big data - great parallel.
