  • RIFT.io's VP of Marketing tells TIA NOW about the two major issues that both vendors and operators need to solve together in order to make NFV the de facto networking architecture.

  • To give us an overview of the current and impending trends in the 2016-2020 edition of the MR&F are John Jackson, Program Vice President for Mobility Research at IDC and John Jacobs, VP of Market Intelligence and Strategy for TIA.

  • Tord Nilsson, Director of Global Marketing at Dell EMC, tells TIA NOW where we are on the journey towards network function virtualization, and what the effect is of merging EMC and Dell with respect to telecom.

  • What is the best way to enable service providers to deploy virtual network functions at scale, and open opportunities for new revenues and a reduced time to market? 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.

  • 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.

  • “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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
