These include streamlining its operational structure to improve service velocity
and efficiency, reorganizing its customer-facing organization to better align with customer needs, and realigning the sales team to more effectively identify new opportunities to increase penetration of existing customers and accelerate cross-selling opportunities.
"Virtualization is beginning to have a profound impact on the cable market, enabling greater agility, capacity and service velocity
with reduced space and power requirements," said Nimrod Ben-Natan, SVP/GM of Cable Access Business at Harmonic.
This improves service velocity
, shortens time-to-revenue, and enables an adaptive network to best address evolving end-user network service requirements for existing, new, and emerging applications with a highly differentiated quality of service.
As network speeds have exploded through 100G and 200G to beyond 400G to cope with increased bandwidth requirements, network operators are increasingly focusing on automation--typically via software defined networking (SDN) or network function virtualisation (NFV)--to increase service velocity
and remove cost and errors from their networks.
Leveraging the company's proprietary high speed ICs and its extensive expertise in optical networking and system design, Menara's portfolio of OTN XFP, SFP+ and CFP modules provide optical networks with superior performance and improved service velocity
while drastically reducing floor space, power consumption and overall network cost.
"This past year, Windstream proved its leadership in this type of service velocity
by accelerating the turn-up of new offerings for enterprises across the U.S."
In order to remain relevant in today's extremely competitive marketplace, customers intimately understand that throwing more terabits at the problem alone will not solve things; but rather, they must also use new tools that automate manual, innovation-stifling tasks and allow for further programmability within the network to improve operations and service velocity
27 November 2015 - US-based digital hospitality service Velocity
has acquired UK-based restaurant discovery and reservation app Uncover, the company said.
SDN's centralized, automated control and provisioning model makes it much easier to support multi-tenancy; to ensure network resources are optimally deployed; to reduce both CapEx and OpEx; and to increase service velocity
This will give carriers great service velocity
and adaptability for both anticipated and unanticipated growth.”
