By using open, standards-based, carrier-grade platforms and software, many network equipment providers (NEPs) are saving millions of dollars and bringing new systems to market more quickly than ever. The key question remains, however: Is it better business for NEPs to develop such systems internally using in-house resources, or is it wiser to source such infrastructure from the commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) vendor ecosystem? Opinions are hotly divided, with valid arguments on both sides of the debate.
In this Webinar we discuss the objective results of a recent Light Reading NEP “Make vs. Buy” survey that reveals the view from NEPs across the industry, and we review the benefits of using off-the-shelf solutions for hardware platforms, middleware, and system integration.
