    One of the key capabilities that will allow us to build flexible networks on top of a common physical infrastructure is network slicing. As 5G continues to take shape, network slicing will become a fundamental technology enabling a wide range of use cases.

All TIA NOW Videos:

  • Scott Puopolo, EVP at iconectiv, spoke with TIA NOWs Abe Nejad at MWC 2017 about the implications of identity fraud for carriers and what they can do to leverage iconectiv’s expertise to protect connectivity and data.

  • 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.

  • Can we make the Wild West of IoT secure and interoperable? TIA NOW convenes a panel of participants from the TIA CTO Council meeting to discuss.

  • NFV is evolving quickly, and Mobile World Congress is a great opportunity to follow the progression of the network virtualization space. On this panel are four leaders in the NFV space from GENBAND, HPE, Intel and Wind River.

  • Wireless carriers are moving beyond cellular connectivity, and industry is innovating beyond traditional technologies, all to support IoT and emerging verticals. At Mobile World Congress 2017, TIA NOW speaks with important industry influencers: Brent Hodges, Head of IoT Planning and Product Strategy at Dell EMC; Bill Morelli, Senior Research Director for Enterprise and IT at IHS and Mo Nasser, GM of IoT Business Unit at Sprint.

  • Supporting 5G will involve innovative technologies, and Nokia with Sprint has made an announcement that will contribute to that goal, here at MWC 2017. Here to cover the highlights of this announcement are Günther Ottendorfer, COO of Technology at Sprint and Ricky Corker, EVP and Head of North America at Nokia.

  • GENBAND CEO David Walsh discusses how RTC can give carriers an edge.

  • Brian Bronson, CEO of Radisys, talks with TIA NOW's Abe Nejad at Mobile World Congress 2017 about real use cases for NFV that have been demonstrated, and his belief that operators are now less reticent to adopt virtualized network technologies.

  • There are opposing opinions about the long term value of NFV by some in the wireless industry and TIA NOW will cover both sides of the debate for and against the role out of software-defined and virtualized networks. Joining us in the TIA NOW Studio is Norman Fekrat, Chief Strategy and Revenue Officer at Lemko, a software company enabling next-generation mobility.

  • Mary Brown, Senior Director of Government Affairs at Cisco Systems and Dileep Srihari, Director of Legislative and Government Affairs at TIA, discuss how the Spectrum Act helped to re-shape America’s spectrum policy by shifting vital spectrum from television broadcast to mobile use, enabling our country to meet consumers’ increasing demands for ubiquitous mobile connectivity and access to high-speed data.

  • Brian Hendricks, Head of Policy and Government Relations for the America’s Region at Nokia talks with TIA’s Dileep Srihari about the FirstNet and Public Safety aspects of the Spectrum Act, offering an introduction to what the law did, where things stand today, plus some interesting perspectives five years later.

  • TIA NOW speaks with Professor Rahim Tafazolli, the Director of the 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) and Institute of Communications Systems. The 5GIC is now the largest UK-based academic research center in Europe dedicated to the development of next-generation mobile and wireless communications.

  • TIA NOW spoke with Dr. Phil Marshall, Chief Research Officer at Tolaga Research and author of TIA’s 5G Operator Survey and Report, about his findings from this online survey, which investigates the current and future 5G strategies for communication network operators.

  • As the telco industry is helping to build carrier-grade, integrated and open source reference platforms for the NFV community, it doesn’t come without its challenges. Ildiko Vancsa, Ecosystem Technical Lead at OpenStack talks with TIA NOW about the next steps to create an ecosystem of NFV platforms, applications, management and orchestration systems.
