RN363 Release Notes for IG1130 TAM Impacts by SDN/NFV R17.5.1

As operators and enterprises evaluate the introduction of virtualization to network functions they are discovering that the biggest challenges lies in the existing organization, processes and systems. For better vision of the corresponding challenge operators need to have the full picture of differences between the traditional and virtualized ecosystem. Still, even this is not enough for transforming an organization into an agile digital services machine. Network operators need particular recommendations for defining principles and implementation of virtualized/Hybrid networks.

Such a high level analysis and recommendations are already defined in TMF documents IG1130 (IG1130 Future TAM Impacts by SDN/NFV) and other TM Forum SDN/NFV related works such as IG1117 “OSS/BSS Futures Overview” and IG1118 “OSS/BSS Futures: Preparing the Future Mode of Operations”).

However, the already existing Best Practices and recommendations should be continuously reviewed and updated to incorporate the most recent studies in TM Forum ZOOM Project.
