Rethink business models or face falling behind, Iskratel tells operators

Speaking at SDN NFV World Congress 2017, Iskratel’s CTO warns that operators must update their business models or risk failing to deliver services for new vertical industries through digital transformation.

Presenting a keynote – titled ‘Building rock-solid cloud solutions on a non-consolidated foundation’ – at SDN NFV World Congress, in The Hague, Damjan Slapar said delivery of this digital transformation would also need to be significantly different to how new network equipment had been installed in the past. The shifting nature of the telco market, he went on, means that system integration will be a key part of the vendor’s tool-kit as operators seek new revenues.

In the face of this increased complexity, Iskratel has introduced a range of solutions that can help operators adapt, including its Cloud-Services Platform (CSP), which is designed to ensure a smooth transition to a virtualised cloud environment. Alongside this, its vIMS – which has already been deployed by Tier 1 operators – and vEPC solutions consolidate operators’ core networks and enables the convergence of fixed and mobile assets.
