NFV / SDN

    TIA's CTO Council Meeting in Dallas, TX created several important points on how to tackle the challenges in the digitization of our networks, applications, hardware and software. Joining the discussion are David Tennenhouse, Chief Research Officer at VMware; Kevin Shatzkamer, VP, Service Provider Solutions and Strategy at Dell EMC, Adam Drobot, Chairman at OpenTechWorks and Amit Tiwari, VP, Strategic Alliances and Systems Engineering at Affirmed Networks.

All NFV / SDN Videos:

  • The explosive growth of internet traffic has disrupted the technology industry, threatening to clog telecom networks… unless a new, scalable approach is implemented. This documentary explores the evolution of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and the hurdles faced when switching from infrastructure-heavy, legacy networks to virtualized networks.

  • As NFV becomes a reality, the telco industry is now filling the gaps to realize the full potential of Network Functions Virtualization. TIA’s NFV initiatives will work to fill those gaps so carriers and service providers can feel confident that the components they launch today, will be compatible 5 years from now.

  • It’s always best to wrap up MWC at the very end of the show with the analysts that were front and center with the carriers and suppliers that we all want to hear from. The analysts joining us discuss 5G, edge computing, narrow-band IoT, NFV, virtual reality and new revenue streams for carriers.

  • How far have we come to demonstrating and implementing an open, cloud-based NFV model to further support transformation within the telco industry? Joining us from MWC 2016 are Brian Higgins, VP of Network Planning at Verizon; Chris Wright, VP and Chief Technologist at Red Hat; Gee Rittenhouse, SVP and GM of the Cloud and Virtualization Group at Cisco and Drew Schulke, Executive Director of Next Generation Infrastructure at Dell.

  • Sports stadiums and crowded shopping malls often require peak capacity from their network to support thousands of high bandwidth devices. But now network topologies are less cost prohibitive to provision and build with NFV and virtualization technologies. Linsey Miller, Vice President of Marketing for Artesyn, tells TIA NOW how C-RAN and vRAN are changing the way we provision our networks.

  • Network transformation to pure IP networks is a challenge that cuts across the communications technology industry. From service providers to enterprise and carriers, moving towards a software-based network needs a bit of hand holding. So where do you begin and what are the partnerships that you will need to invest in to go all IP? At Mobile World Congress 2016, GENBAND and their partners HPE, Intel and Wind River help guide industry down the path to becoming all IP.

  • The deployment phase is where Orange feels the value lies, in order to create real world solutions for optimal customer experience in the NFV space. Yves Bellago, Director of Technical and Network Strategy at Orange, tells TIA NOW why the transformation to "on-demand" is integral for carriers as they transition from POCs to actual deployments.

  • We’ve all heard about the primary benefits of NFV technologies: scalability, agility and automation, to increase time to market for our products and services. But what other benefits have emerged since MWC 2015? Miniature cloud-based replicas for deploying a steady flow of innovation into a live network can be a challenging concept to wrap your head around. Darrell Jordan-Smith, Worldwide VP of ICT at Red Hat and John Healy, General Manager of the SDN Division at Intel join us in the studio.

  • Solving telecommunications and enterprise use cases is what Dave Neary, SDN and NFV Community Strategist at Red Hat is setting his sights on. Open source and open platforms allows developers to take their source code to the service market and scale that service.

  • Moving from network lock-in to open source for NFV is partly due to do the work of Jeff Baher, Sr. Director of NFV Solutions at Dell and Chris Wright, Chief Technologist at Red Hat. Supporting software-defined networks for storage, compute and network capabilities on an open network platform has new requirements. Telcos are more than willing to welcome an open cloud platform for network communications and to further explore the benefits of open source for NFV solutions.

  • The service reliability by operators is independent of the reliability of the hardware, said Dave Neary, NFV Community Strategist at Red Hat. Neary joined Current Analysis’s Vice President of Consumer and Infrastructure, Peter Jarich as TIA NOW’s Abe Nejad moderated a panel on the importance of "five 9s" reliability for operator services - for manageability, reliability and security.

  • Every year, TIA NOW sums up the most current and prevailing technologies, policies and market trends for the communications technology industry. Joining us to talk about Title II, spectrum, cybersecurity, IoT, NFV and more are James Reid, SVP of Government Affairs at the Telecommunications Industry Association; Franklin Flint, CTO at TIA and John Jacobs, VP of Member and Industry Affairs at TIA.

  • Margaret Chiosi, President of OPNFV and Distinguished Network Architect at AT&T, talks with Abe Nejad at TIA NOW about why “you can’t afford to not participate” in the advancement of the open source community.

  • The President and Chief Executive Officer of ClearPath Networks, Cliff Young, spoke with TIA NOW’s Abe Nejad about Virtual Network Function as a Service for operators as vCPE is leveraged to monetize NFV, being the fastest-growing NFV use case.

  • Virtualized compute and storage are far ahead of network virtualization, but why? Sandra Rivera, Vice President and General Manager of the Network Platforms Group at Intel, talks with TIA NOW about the climate of the open source community for Network Functions Virtualization. Rivera also offers up some real world examples of the power of NFV and why the open source approach to NFV is the quickest path to reducing the bottleneck in the network.
