Network-as-a-Service: Transforming the Enterprise Marketplace

Date : 2020-05-06

Date: 6th May
Time: 3pm UK Time
Network-as-a-service (NaaS) not only represents an opportunity for communications service providers (CSPs) to enhance their network and cloud services offerings, it also translates into enhanced choice, agility and service reach for their enterprise customers.
To understand the NaaS drivers, opportunities and technical requirements, Heavy Reading and Omdia, in collaboration with Amdocs, launched three comprehensive global market surveys in the fourth quarter of 2019. These surveys were designed to collect valuable NaaS data trends and preferences from enterprises, virtual network function (VNF) vendors and CSPs from around the world.
This webinar will provide a readout of the key survey findings. Topics to be addressed include:
Business and technical drivers for enterprises to adopt NaaS-based services
Enterprise preferences for buying specific VNF-based services via a service provider portal
VNF vendor perception of the challenges CSPs face in monetizing NaaS services
VNF vendor insight into the value proposition that advanced NaaS-based capabilities such as cross-domain orchestration delivers
CSPs commitment to implement NaaS services
CSP NaaS implementation drivers and challenges
The criteria CSPs consider when selecting NaaS vendors
Tier-1 CSP NaaS use case example
