- When: Friday, July 1, 10:20 a.m.
- Where: Acropolis Convention Center, Nice, France
Service providers want to know how to deploy NFV for greatest revenue opportunity and cost reduction. But to achieve this, should they virtualize at the edge or centrally in a data center? Should they focus on Layer 2 functions and connectivity, or Layer 3?
Prayson Pate will present his thoughts on why those aren’t even the most interesting questions with regard to NFV. He will explain why service providers should ask how they can dynamically orchestrate NFV-based services to provide new revenue and how they can deploy across both greenfield and brownfield scenarios. Using real world examples, Prayson will share answers to these questions and guidance for how to deploy NFV to maximize revenue.
