The demand for inter-carrier service orchestration
Mobile backhaul relies heavily on AVs, and the rise of small cells is accelerating the need. If a large enterprise customer wants access for fifty sites, of which ten are off the provider's net, how to choose the best AVs?
Tomorrow's SDN architectures will add another layer of complexity, and yet NFV and SDN controllers can be seen as just another set of data sources in this service orchestration model - order placement and tracking integration can stay consistent, while SDN accelerates service delivery.
These and other potential applications are limitless. Meanwhile "networks with a conscience" are already orchestrating better, faster service quality for Ethernet connectivity services.
