The journey to NFV started back in 2010, when network operators envisioned making use of cloud technologies in the network. They wanted to replace closed single-vendor solutions with open multi-vendor platforms and to innovate at the speed of software. The transition has now reached a tipping point, where the lead adopters are joined by their peers, and the technology spills over into adjacent application markets and channels. This market is no longer dominated by service provider visionaries. Enterprise CIOs are now forcing the market to provide them uCPE solutions, either as a managed service, or with increasing frequency, as a purchased solution.
Join James Buchanan as he outlines how an open approach, combined with operational features that meet standard telco practices, can enable edge cloud to become a reality.
