The Cloud Comms market has seen huge growth during the last decade as enterprises move both their voice services and their applications to the cloud. Many service providers’ core networks have grown organically over this time and sit in a high state of jeopardy as their core networks have been updated and changed to meet customer demand with no long-term network planning in place.
This has led to inconsistencies that can be seen across the core in hardware models, software versions, interface numbering, VLAN/IP subnets, routing and network management function. This leaves you with a network that is unpredictable during changes or failures and difficult to provision, manage and troubleshoot. As your customers become more dependent on your network, someday (soon) that before-unnoticed network SPOF may seriously affect your customer’s service along with your business reputation.
It maybe high time to assess your current network status; to evaluate and mitigate exposure to high profile failures; to optimize for future growth and stability and to assess your readiness for the introduction of new technologies such as SD-WAN.
