Telcos of all kinds – wireless, fixed and converged – have been grappling with big data with mixed success for a decade or more. They are among the most data-rich organizations on the planet, with sources spanning everything from their radio infrastructure, transport and core networks to devices, including location, and almost unequalled amounts of information about their customers. Yet releasing the value of those immense treasuries of data has generally proved slow and expensive, with sub-optimal outcomes.
This damages their ability to monetize data, streamline and automate their operations, improve customer experience, and manage the complex life cycles of their increasingly sophisticated products and services as the era of 5G and IoT advances. Data infrastructure and management require flexibility and scale that far exceeds the capabilities of their proprietary, legacy operational and business support systems (B/OSS).
Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions for big data analytics can help telcos address many data challenges—for example, one of Europe’s largest operator groups is leveraging big data analytics to improve its security posture and user experience as it deploys virtual desktop technology on HCI and public cloud to enable almost all its European employees to work from home.
Nutanix HCI has many benefits such as:
- Accelerates big data deployments.
- Operates efficiently at scale.
- Delivers higher levels of security and resiliency.
- Decreases risks and lowers costs by as much as 50%.
