    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:

  • 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.

  • TIA will soon launch the first US-based, vendor-agnostic testing ground for NFV experiments, demos, and proofs of concepts, to facilitate industry collaboration for virtual network equipment and software. TIA’s CTO, Franklin Flint, spoke with TIA NOW about how the NFV lab will function and ultimately lead the industry for NFV interoperability testing.

  • Gee Rittenhouse, Senior Vice President & General Manager of the Cloud and Virtualization Group at Cisco tells TIA NOW’s Abe Nejad about the digitization of our businesses. From the Internet of Everything to the virtualization of our networks, these technologies will allow enterprises to fully digitize their IT infrastructures, making the end game more profitable and efficient.

  • TIA’s CTO Council Industry Panel with telecom industry leaders was filmed following TIA’s CTO Council meeting and preceding Dell World 2015 in Austin, TX. The panelists from Dell, Ericsson, Intel and Juniper Networks discussed the future of IoT and NFV on next-generation networks.

  • Hassan Ahmed, Chief Executive Officer of Affirmed Networks tells TIA NOW how the CAPEX and OPEX benefits are just two of the drivers for NFV technologies. Ahmed adds that NFV has moved beyond the packet core and now into the IMS and Wi-Fi access space.

  • Prodip Sen, Chief Technology Officer of the NFV Business Unit at HP, tells TIA NOW about the story behind how the industry matured towards NFV deployments. So how do you get NFV into your network?

  • Mark Russinovich, Chief Technology Officer of Microsoft Azure, tells TIA NOW what SDN means to the Cloud, and how the industry can take advantage of virtual networking technologies.

  • Hassan Ahmed, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Affirmed Networks, talks to TIA NOW about the promises of NFV including a 70% reduced total cost of ownership. Ahmed says, "You are wasting money if you are not doing it [NFV]."

  • At the TIA 2015 Network of the Future Conference, Sandro Tavares, Head of Marketing, Mobile Core at Nokia Networks, tells TIA NOW why network agility - to scale and innovate - is the primary driver for Cloud technologies.

  • Guido Appenzeller, Chief Technology Strategy Officer of the Networking & Security Business Unit at Vmware, tells TIA NOW why the mechanics of SDN is not the hot topic anymore. Now, the industry wants to know the true impact of virtualized networks on the future of existing and emerging markets. Appenzeller is one of the pioneers of SDN technology protocols and architectures, spanning back to his days as a professor at Stanford University working on the OpenFlow development project.

  • Andre Fuetsch, Senior Vice President of Architecture and Design at AT&T, tells TIA NOW how AT&T is reacting to the 100 petabytes of data surging across its network pipes. SDN and NFV technologies are drastically changing the way operators approach the data deluge and Fuetsch sees the opportunities in these new technologies.

  • As mobile data services are expected to grow sevenfold in the next three years, MNOs are eager to figure out how to monetize those services with ingenuity and reliability. At TIA 2015, Amit Tiwari, Vice President of Strategic Alliances and Systems Engineering at Affirmed Networks, spoke with TIA NOW about the services that create opportunity, supported by NFV technologies.
