2017 is shaping up to be the year of NFV deployments – especially for operators who can solve the problems encountered when taking NFV from the lab to large-scale rollout. Service providers are collaborating with companies that have proven that they see beyond NFV, understand the unique challenges of the telco network, and who embrace the full benefits of the cloud.
Operators need partners who can offer software-based services built with an ecosystem of partners. They require solutions for deployment issues such as zero-touch commissioning, Open vSwitch performance and OpenStack limitations, as well as methods for getting the most out of low-cost servers. Operators need answers for providing security at multiple layers and the ability to follow an agile development model with DevOps deployments.
In this session, Prayson Pate will demonstrate how ADVA Ensemble has helped leading service providers gain the benefits of cloudifying their networks with NFV.
