Network Functions Virtualization – Building the Software Telco
Join Tom Schroer, Director of Service Provider Marketing with Dialogic and James Middleton of Telecoms.com as they discuss what organizations need to know about Network Functions Virtualization and strategies to transform today’s service delivery networks to tomorrow’s Software Telcos.
Service providers are under pressure to constantly stay at the forefront of technology, delivering new and innovative services to their customers. To keep pace with these demands, they find themselves caught in a rapid and continuous deployment lifecycle reliant on purpose-built hardware appliances. But this is a strategy that is getting harder to manage and runs the risk of slowing innovation and increasing operational costs.
To address these challenges, Service Providers are driving a transformative concept called Network Functions Virtualization – or NFV – that moves network functionality to software and leverages commercially available commodity server hardware from the IT sector and teams it with virtualization technology.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss the following concepts
- The NFV framework and the challenges associated with virtualizing real-time media intensive services
- What criteria can be used to assess whether a particular network element is a good candidate for virtualization
- Strategies service providers can use to help kick start their NFV implementation with virtualizing session control and management at the service provider and enterprise access edge
- Followed by Q&A
