- Where: Network Virtualization and SDN Europe, Novotel Madrid Centre, Madrid, Spain
Network functions virtualization (NFV) offers network operators a quick, easy and cost-effective way to begin offering new services without impacting or adding risk to their existing carrier-class networks. Prayson will explain how NFV can be layered on existing infrastructure and OSS/BSS systems with no change to existing Layer 3 VPNs. The cost for getting started with this type of deployment is low and future investment can track directly to business growth.
Prayson Pate will describe how this approach is deployed for lowest cost and dynamic scalability. This highly distributed model is easily integrated with existing OSS/BSS based on individual service orders and is an ideal way to generate additional incremental revenue on existing infrastructure. Operators looking for simple, cost-effective ways to increase revenue in their brownfield networking environments will gain practical insight based on real-world implementations where NFV is successfully enabling new service offerings.
