MPLS+SDN+NFV World Congress – ‘understanding the software defined wave.’ At this annual forum in Paris, France, a group of diverse industry experts gathered to discuss the latest trends in transformative technology, including automation, transforming customer experience, intent-based networking, and whether NFV/SDN is hype or real.

We all know that global IP traffic is increasing at exponential rates, and will only continue to grow. On a similar trajectory, we observe that customer expectations also continue to swell. Consumers want instant access to network services at any time in any location.

The urgency to transform in order to support this bandwidth growth and level of customer experience has become critical not only for business success, but also for survival. Enter: transformative technology.

You must transform in order to flourish in these new market conditions. Adopt new rules in networking through automation, segment routing, and infrastructure security to become more than you’ve ever been before. You must reimagine your network. And you need a partner you can trust with the expertise to ensure your success.

Look how Colt is fast-tracking the delivery of new services.

Colt connects more than 800 data centers around the world with more than 25,000 on-net buildings, providing high-bandwidth network and voice services for enterprise and wholesale customers in Europe, Asia, and North America.

Last year, they announced an upgrade to their network that will enable:

  • Faster convergence time
  • Increased network availability and resiliency
  • Shorter time to market with high-bandwidth services
  • Significantly reduced operating costs
  • Quality, speed, capacity, and flexibility to meet application-specific service quality requirements

At the center of Colt’s transformation is constant improvement to customer experience, giving their consumers instant access to network services at any time in any location.

And, this month, together with our experts at Cisco, we celebrate a key milestone in upgrading Colt’s pan-European, U.S. and Asian packet network, laying the foundation for Colt’s network to deliver further differentiated, high-bandwidth connectivity solutions.
