Achieving Software Defined Everything
There is a sense of urgency in the networking sector to replace traditional, close and proprietary hardware with software. With deep expertise in the networking sector, Altran (formerly Aricent) helps our clients navigate the software transformation in networking.
The drive by service providers to cut costs is putting pressure on the networking eco-system to respond with simpler networking equipment and components that are software-defined. A major focus for OEM's is to decouple hardware and software so equipment (routers, switches, edge devices, storage and compute) is platform agnostic - and more importantly programmable. Whether the use-case is an enterprise or cloud data center, evolved packet core or wire-line - the expectation is the rapid provisioning of services and managing the digital customer experience. Virtualization followed by software-defined networking has challenged OEM's to reinvent products and business models.
It is a reality that every company must move beyond sustaining the existing portfolios to finding new and durable revenue streams. It takes disciplined and seasoned engineering to ensure product success and meet stringent market demands and at Altran we understand the R&D ambitions for network equipment providers and service providers.
The open hardware movement, open source and software defined infrastructure is nothing short of a paradigm shift. The disruption is causing new entrants such as ODMs and silicon vendors to take on the open networking alternatives for the digital era.
We help both equipment manufacturers and service providers identify critical market requirements for next generation networking products and services. Our product development expertise helps our clients realize cutting-edge new products and services in the networking and telecommunications industry.
