An end-to-end NFV infrastructure solution is the answer, but it has to have the right ingredients. On this edition of TIA NOW’s NFV series, we explore a few ways to increase network optimization, reduce costs and deliver quick deployments, with Dave Ward, Chief Architect & CTO of Engineering at Cisco.

  • How do orchestration and automation in the network provide coordination, scaling, installation and configuration capabilities for NFV? On this edition of TIA NOW’s NFV Series to answer these questions is Prodip Sen, CTO of Network Functions Virtualization at Hewlett-Packard Enterprise.

  • NYU Wireless Founder Ted Rapport discusses the new possibilities with more spectrum following the FCC's Spectrum Frontiers ruling.

  • Nick Maynard, Program Director at the National Science Foundation, discusses the importance of bringing universities and corporations together to drive innovation and speed to market for wireless apps and services, through research platforms in several cities across the U.S.

  • Selina Lo, President and CEO of Ruckus Wireless, talks to TIA NOW about transforming the network of today to a more agile network of tomorrow.

  • Sprint's VP of Technology Ron Marquardt talks to TIA NOW about the technology and human enablers of 5G.
