ACG TCO Study: 

Substantial economic benefits of NFV Transformation: Openness, New Network Economics & Service Agility

Download Now >

ACG recently completed a Total Cost of Ownership study of a prominent Tier 1 operator who carried out a broad transition to NFV using open, modular, best of breed design and software driven processes at many layers of operation.  At the onset of the NFV transformation, Telcos/CSPs and equipment vendors across the supply and value chain have actively participated in the various stages of the NFV transformation journey. From early standardization efforts and framework definitions, to the numerous POCs and early trials, they have now traveled to production trials and deployments. Dell EMC’s technology portfolio, our best practices and extensive experience in building hyperscale data center and cloud solutions has provided the CSP with sound infrastructure economics, service agility and access to a rich ecosystem of validated vendors and partners. In that light, ACG has published one of the very first studies that quantifies the benefits and positive impact of one of the largest Telco infrastructure modernization project in the world. This 2017 report highlights the quantified, material gains in terms of network economics, service composition and innovation abilities, as well as openness to large ecosystems of vendors and services. 

Measured, material gains are compelling. Achieving tangible NFV modernization gains: 

• Up to 3X service agility at 65% less cost 
• Up to 53% lower capex and 47% lower TCO 
• Up to 43% lower cost of operation
