As an active member of Cambridge Wireless (CW), CGI is pleased to be part of the next CW Virtual Networks Special Interest Group (SIG) online event entitled: ‘A reality check for SDN in progress towards 5G network ...
The Government has now announced that telecoms providers cannot install any new 5G equipment after the end of 2020 and need to remove all Huawei equipment from 5G networks by the end of 2027. This seems like a long time ...

Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) aims to simplify telecoms networks, and give the same flexibility and agility that cloud computing has given to the IT industry. Software Defined Networks (SDN) are inherently programmable, separating the control part from the media part. Together, they enable an enterprise to deliver services to customers more flexibly. SDN is often used alongside Cloud Computing, with an overall orchestration layer which can control both the network connectivity and compute / storage environment to provide rapid deployment capability.

The technology and standards around NFV and SDN are mature, but deployment remains complex. There are a large number of technology providers in the market place and CGI works with them to provide integration solutions that help communication service providers get to market faster.

Wherever on the road to NFV and SDN, we’re here to help. CGI is able to draw on extensive experience in cloud solutions and decades of working with communication service providers, to develop the right overall solution, including the OSS and BSS changes that you will need to be able to launch services.

    • We have over 30 years’ extensive industry expertise and expertise
    • We work with our clients to develop use and business cases for SDN and NFV
    • We develop roadmaps for OSS and BSS evolution as well as support in the delivery and operation of these systems
