Due to constant growth in user traffic and digital transformation happening across various industries, Telecom Service Providers have to address this demand with continual investments in network scalability. They usually have a diverse set of proprietary hardware which hosts individual network components and consumes considerable amount of space, power and skilled resources necessary to integrate & operate the hardware. All these factors lead to a significant increase in OPEX & CAPEX from operating and maintaining complex hardware based network elements. Moreover, these hardware-based network elements rapidly reach EOL (end of life), requiring much of the procure-design-integrate-deploy cycle to be repeated with little or no revenue benefits to TSPs.
