CA is proud to work with leading industry analyst firm ACG Research to help uncover the challenges that customers will face when adopting and deploying new software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) technologies. ACG Research findings conclude that Service providers and IT departments are seeking ways to increase agility, efficiency and innovation and are looking to new network technologies for a path to success. SDN and NFV, however, reshape conventional network designs and introduce the need for new management and service assurance tools to handle implementation.
In this report, ACG Research reveals that CA has taken an important step forward in advancing the state of the art in SDN and NFV by bringing CA Virtual Network Assurance to market. The solution fills an important market need by aligning gracefully with the new virtual designs and also bridging efficiently with existing management systems, allowing new virtual systems to move forward in parallel with what’s already deployed.
