What Will Future Networks Look Like?

Friday, April 17, 2015

I regularly get this question and usually summarize my vision with the following points. I think future Networks will be: 1. Virtualized (SDN and NFV)2. Much more automated than today3. Built using components4. Leveraging open source frameworks The two first principles have been widely discussed within the networking industry, so let me focus instead on […]

Announcing the Market’s First Standards-Based, Dedicated Service Classifier

Friday, February 20, 2015

In competitive markets, with rapid innovation at the application layer, telecom operators need to strengthen their ability to address emerging use cases and business models. They are looking for fast & easy service creation, and at a lower cost than today. A key ingredient to achieve these goals is intelligent, dynamic, service chaining. This is […]

Qosmos 2015 Trends and Outlook

Monday, January 19, 2015

#1 Mobile subscribers will decide what they pay for An average 3G subscriber consumes around 800 MB per month. Predictions estimate that with 4G this will rise to about 1 GB to 2 GB … which means that most mobile subscribers pay for more than they actually use. New virtualized architectures based on SDN and […]

Standardizing Service Chaining Models for Next-Generation Service Provider Architectures

Monday, November 17, 2014

With intense competition in the communications industry, service providers are looking for ways to offer new services faster and more cost-effectively. Dynamic service chaining allows you to do just that. With application-aware service chaining, you can quickly and efficiently create and deliver new, composite services by routing network flows through multiple, linked service functions (SFs). […]

New Ways to Monetize Mobile Services: Leverage Application-Aware Service Chaining in the Gi-LAN

Thursday, September 11, 2014

Mobile network operators are beginning to adopt network functions virtualization (NFV), in particular for services functions in the Gi-LAN: video optimization, content caching, parental control, URL filtering, and other value-added services (VAS). Virtualizing these services onto standard hardware will obviously lead to increased flexibility, operating efficiencies and cost reductions. But even more interesting, these operators […]

Building Future Networks Based on SDN and NFV: Challenges, Benefits and the Key Role of Network Intelligence

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Article abstractToday, the challenge is how to enforce policy controls, manage traffic and differentiate services when most of the traffic on networks consists of third-party applications and services. Service-awareness and Layer 7 knowledge enhance the effectiveness of SDN and NFV networks, so that traffic can be controlled with greater automation, according to a global network […]

Using Layer 7 Intelligence to Create a Service-Aware Data Center

Wednesday, June 4, 2014

Future data centers will be completely service-aware, with real-time intelligence up to layer 7 available uniformly across the entire infrastructure. That’s the Qosmos vision. How can this vision become a reality? Imagine the following: replace all DPI stacks currently residing in point products with DPI software embedded in the hypervisor in each server. This means […]

Service-Aware Networks Based on SDN and NFV Could Accelerate Mobile Pay-Per-Use

Monday, May 5, 2014

Subscribers are increasingly unhappy paying flat rates for unlimited mobile usage. Why?First, “unlimited” is a more effective marketing pitch than “actual” usage. How many people are using more than 3 GB of network bandwidth per month? Some studies show that the average 3G subscriber only consumes around 800 MB per month. Even with 4G, studies […]
