  • 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.

  • Johnny Ghibril, VP for Software Solutions and Strategy at Nexius, tells TIA NOW how we are no longer dependent on specific network components. Ghibril adds that agility in the network introduced a different cultural model for our industry, as we innovate with new and redundant technologies.

  • Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing at ADTRAN, says service providers need to balance new revenue streams with the cost of maintaining the network. Raaflaub talks about how software defined networking will allow service providers to be more profitable through increased network and operating efficiencies, allowing the roll out of new services to become more streamlined.

  • 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.

  • 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 episode of TIA’s Network of the Future Interview Series is Timothy Doolittle, Director of IP Networks and Systems at CenturyLink. Doolittle tells TIA NOW what carriers need from NFV technologies, including benefits like time to revenue and cost savings.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
