Globally carriers have been scouting for ways to perform service fulfillment tasks ranging from performance monitoring, assurance, data analytics, to security and policy management. There is an inherent need among service providers for a structured and systematic approach for their carrier network virtualization responsibilities. Lifecycle Services Orchestration (LSO) addresses this by delivering end-to-end service management for any specific offering within the virtualization space.
Developed as the 'Third Network' initiative by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF), LSO aims to deliver improved multi-vendor interoperability and the ability to deploy elastic and dynamic services. Emerging technologies such as SDN and NFV enable full scalability of network functions, thereby generating new network requirements for carriers. LSO aims to address these necessities and targets to be the next-gen platform for carriers and service providers.
While the current impact on carrier networks is debatable, the future of these networks could be affected significantly by standards and techniques such as LSO and NFV among others. With standardization agencies working towards easier adoption of LSO, more service providers will actively pursue new pilots and implement LSO solutions across their stack, either through vendors or by themselves.
Cross service provider domain interfacing is tricky and needs broad industry support for the full realization of LSO. For the time being, the market opportunity for LSO across the globe is significant across service providers, and might extend to enterprises as well, offering a new value-driven opportunity for network solution providers. Arcluster forecasts the worldwide LSO market to reach $3.67 billion in revenues in 2023.
