Telco providers have a history of reliable services with only little change. This has changed during the last decade: Mobile access networks (3,4,5G) have emerged, and reliable and flexible networks are needed for the resource demand of a changing Internet service ecosystem. Deutsche Telekom sees SDN, NFV and white-box switching hardware as enablers to reach higher agility, lower time-to-market and reduced costs. This lecture will give an insight into how Deutsche Telekom envisions to apply these new technologies in their operations network, and will describe and explain the underlying SDN and NFV foundations.
