All NFV / SDN Videos:

  • AT&T’s Susan Johnson, SVP of Global Supply Chain, and CenturyLink’s Todd Miller, VP of Network Operations, discuss how they’ve raised the bar thanks to TL9000 and close coordination with their supplier partners via QuEST Forum. They also discuss what they foresee as required network innovation, and their expectations for the newly announced merger of TIA and QuEST Forum.

  • Accelerating the development and adoption of NFV requires working with service providers and ecosystem partners to help build deployable solutions. But what barriers still exist that prevent virtualized networks from being deployed everywhere today? Timon Sloane, VP of Standards and Membership at the Open Networking Foundation, shared his advice on navigating the complexity of NFV adoption and how industry can benefit from open source platforms.

  • Paul Schultz, VP of Service Development and Strategy at KGP Companies, spoke with TIA NOW about the impact of SDN and NFV on new business models. Schultz continues to reflect on how logistics companies can move the needle forward in the network virtualization space.

  • Doug Moore, EVP and COO at Fujitsu Network Communications told Abe Nejad at TIA NOW that network virtualization is permeating the enterprise and now more so in the service provider sector. He stressed that operationalizing support systems for network virtualization is a big challenge for the industry.

  • The Analysts at TIA's Connectivity Jam 2017 drove the participants hard to find out how the industry is grappling with the challenges to be overcome and the opportunities to be grasped. What important new nuggets did each stream discussion reveal? Now it’s time to learn key takeaways and get a sense of the information that will be in the IDC final report.

  • TIA's Connectivity Jam, June 5-7 in Dallas, is a highly interactive and outcomes-focused executive conference. Senior executives and technologists will collaborate to solve the connectivity industry’s tough challenges, and walk away with an IDC Analyst Report from their work during the conference. John Jackson, Research Vice President at IDC, and Limor Schafman, Content Development Director at TIA, discuss how this event is different from other conferences, who should attend, and how participants will benefit from attending.

  • Roy Chua, Partner and Founder of SDxCentral, spoke to TIA NOW’s Abe Nejad about the relationship between SDN, DevOps and network virtualization. Chua says infrastructure as code and SDN are vital for increased agility in a virtualized network.

  • What are the challenges when merging the culture of open source with the exacting requirements of carrier-grade infrastructure? Heather Kirksey, Director of Linux’s Open Platform for NFV spoke with Abe Nejad about OPNFV’s integration of upstream open source projects such as OpenDaylight and KVM into an open, carrier-grade NFV reference platform.

  • Are we closer to the starting line than the finish line of NFV? What should industry be focusing on at this stage of the NFV maturation cycle? These are questions that Dave Ward, CTO of Engineering and Chief Architect at Cisco spoke about from ONS 2017.

  • Andre Fuetsch, President of AT&T Labs and CTO at AT&T and John Donovan, Chief Strategy Officer and Group President at AT&T Technology and Operations, talk with TIA NOW's Abe Nejad about the design of next-generation 5G wireless infrastructures, software-defined networking and automation, from the show floor at ONS 2017.

  • TIA NOW hosts a panel at ONS 2017 on operationalizing NFV networks as well as new design architectures, tools and standards to secure the network. Joining the panel are Rajesh Gadiyar, Senior Director of Architecture & Systems Engineering of the Network Platforms Group at Intel and Brenda Boehm, Chief Strategy Officer and EVP of Technology & Products at TIA.

  • As the telco industry is going through significant transformation in automation and network virtualization, service assurance and real-time analytics play an important role. Here at Mobile World Congress 2017, TIA NOW speaks with two important figures in the communications networking space: Andre Fuetsch, President of AT&T Labs and CTO of AT&T and Philippe Morin, COO at EXFO.

  • As new business models around NFV increase, operators are no longer managing a handful of innovations - but now managing dozens of technologies that support NFV. In comes the independent systems integrator, to marry these innovations with operators to customize and create a robust NFV solution.

  • Kevin Shatzkamer, VP of Service Provider Solutions and Strategy at Dell EMC speaks with TIA NOW’s Abe Nejad about his new role, which includes areas like strategy and architectural evolution at the intersection points of network technologies, virtual platforms and software programmability.
