How is the transition to a software-defined access network done?

When transitioning to a software-defined access network (SDAN), the question operators are asking is: “How do we do it?” Each phase of a transformation presents operators with brand-new challenges or learning opportunities. The key ones are:


  • An upfront assessment that defines the transformation path and quantifies the benefits.
  • Rethinking how to build a network that sustains a hybrid SDAN environment, including new SDN-native and legacy elements, and making the most of new intent-based networking concepts
  • How to operate and continuously evolve the network using agile software delivery methods.
