Riverbed reiterates the need for Network as a Service

Share

Riverbed is collaborating with Huawei to combine Riverbed SteelHead, a solution for accelerated delivery of applications across the hybrid WAN, with Huawei’s solutions. The goal of the collaboration is to bring new services to market more quickly and address some of the most critical needs organisations are facing as they go digital and move to the cloud.

“Our meetings and conversations at MWC 2018 clearly validated our perspective and point of view in terms of the need for Network as a Service (NaaS), not only as a technical platform for building and delivering new services, but also as a platform to help our customers and partners to continue to innovate,” said Phil Harris, senior vice president and general manager, service provider business group at Riverbed Technology.

“NaaS requires a new architectural approach to network design and deployment as well as a new operational model with more flexible consumption and licensing options.” Harris further observed how MWC is now much more than a “service provider” event.  “We now see everything from car manufacturers to home appliance companies showing how the connected world is accelerating the opportunities for those who see the major trends of IoT and 5G changing the way we think about Enterprise IT.”
