John Zannos will be moderating a panel: NFV Becoming a Reality – what’s ready – what’s easy?
NFV is becoming a reality in the world of networks. There are many questions that abound from the use of containers and OpenStack. The real challenge is how do you simplify the deployment of the NFV infrastructure and the VNFs. The goal is to make things quick and easy. The reality is that it now works in production, supported by an array of open source and proprietary deployment and scaling options. Service providers and the largest enterprises are embracing virtualized network functions to improve network agility and reduce hardware budgets. We will look at what’s real, what’s not, and what’s tantalizingly close to production readiness.
