NFV at the edge is now a reality. This is great news for operators as many virtualized applications (mobile services, content delivery, and IoT to name a few) provide maximum value when hosted near end users, where latency and cost can be dramatically reduced.

In this presentation, James Buchanan delivers “postcards from the edge” and reveals effective solutions to the operational hurdles involved in bringing NFV to the service edge. He will also outline the payback operators are seeing today from being able to use one common platform for many different applications.
