The Future of Network Operations

WithDeepak Kanwar, Danny Raz

For decades the evolution of network operations has been manifestly slower than the growth in electronics and network technology, which are largely driven by Moore’s Law. Network operations are comprised of multiple dimensions: people, processes, platforms/tools and performance/ metrics, which we will collectively refer to as the “4Ps”. The coordination and improvement of these dimensions is a complex undertaking with many human factors that are notoriously slow to evolve; so it is little surprise that the state of network operations lags far behind that of the technologically driven evolution of the network.
