    If NFV is to be realized, it will require strategic partnerships and collaborations. What are the challenges that lie ahead? TIA NOW speaks with Philippe Morin, CEO of EXFO and Matt Beal, Director of Technology Strategy and Architecture at Vodafone, about the road ahead to making NFV a reality.

All NFV / SDN Videos:

  • The main ingredients for network virtualization that support the Internet of Things are skilled people, horizontal business models and a provider's willingness to listen to its users. In the Dell TIA NOW studio, we explore the synergy between NFV and IoT with Pierre Olivier-Mathys, Director of Global Telco Solutions at Red Hat and Brett Sappington, Senior Director of Research at Parks Associates.

  • Rod Naphan, CTO of Fujitsu Network Communications tells TIA NOW that the biggest challenge for NFV is that the open source community is moving at a rapid pace, and industry trying to keep up with the production cycles.

  • “Making the network sustainably profitable and supporting the deluge of data are the key goals for telcos in the coming years,” said Manish Singh, VP of SDN and NFV Solutions at Tech Mahindra.

  • Why is it so difficult to automate and orchestrate carrier networks when enterprises/clouds have been successfully doing it for several years? What are the carriers’ fears or issues with current solutions which are hindering greater deployment? Red Hat, Intel and Netscout discuss.

  • As communications service providers re-architect their networks, there are both technical and business implications. So how should we best prepare? Here to tell us, in the Dell TIA NOW studio, is Sandra Rivera, VP and GM of the Network Platforms Group at Intel.

  • Carriers have concerns about NFV Security, as their networks become more reliant on open source technologies and protocols. From the Dell TIA NOW studio, at TIA 2016, we will explore how carriers are approaching open source, in the burgeoning NFV Security space. Here in our studio is Bryan Larish, SDN/NFV Architecture Planning at Verizon and Chair of TIA’s NFV Security Working Group, also with us is Ken Garrard, CEO at Aunigma Network Solutions Corp and on the end is Franklin Flint, CTO at TIA

  • Are discussions about networking, SDN and traditional data center virtualization becoming blurred, and how is software-defined networking and network programmability, becoming more of a challenge for our industry? Here at the Dell TIA NOW Studio at TIA 2016, TIA NOW will look into this topic with Ramki Krishnan, Distinguished Engineer and Chief Technology Officer of NFV, at Dell Networking.

  • TIA NOW spoke with Shamus McGillicuddy, Senior Analyst of Network Management at Enterprise Management Associates, about the impact NFV is having not only telcos and service providers, but also the enterprise.

    On this week's Network of the Future interview series, TIA NOW speaks with Bill Beesley, Principal Solutions Architect for Packet Optical Networking, at Fujitsu Network Communications. Beesley explains the relationship between NFV and the rise of 5G technologies, from the standardization of APIs to future trends in 5G and NFV.

    On this segment of TIA’s Network of the Future interview series, TIA NOW speaks with Avi Ambale, Founder and CEO of Pervazive, an enterprise software company serving the telco ecosystem. Avi talks about the primary concerns by operators for NFV security, from a business and technology perspective.

  • 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.
