Owning and operating strategically important network assets can be a significant CAPEX and OPEX burden for any modern company. Consequently, many large and small companies are investigating alternative ownership models. Service providers can support their enterprise customers’ digital transformation by offering a fully managed NaaS.
Our research with IDC reveals many service providers are beginning to develop strategic relationships with their enterprise customers. Enterprises are increasingly likely to ask service providers for guidance on how to prepare for the cloud era. Many are also opting for a fully managed, transport agnostic and value-added-services solution.
Service Provider Opportunity
Riverbed estimates about 20% of a typical enterprise’s systems are connected via MPLS. This presents service providers with a golden opportunity to use SD-WAN to extend their existing MPLS franchise and win more of the enterprise footprint.
Connecting most enterprise sites will not only bring higher revenue, but significant new service opportunities. For example, service providers can create new revenue by running a centralized policy for application traffic and bundling other value-added services, such as visibility, management, optimization and dynamic policy, on top of the basic connectivity.
