    Leveraging more programmable networks based on SDN principles that support an operator's need to grow their business is what these panelists discuss with TIA NOW from TIA's Connectivity Jam.

  • Sports stadiums and crowded shopping malls often require peak capacity from their network to support thousands of high bandwidth devices. But now network topologies are less cost prohibitive to provision and build with NFV and virtualization technologies. Linsey Miller, Vice President of Marketing for Artesyn, tells TIA NOW how C-RAN and vRAN are changing the way we provision our networks.

  • Network transformation to pure IP networks is a challenge that cuts across the communications technology industry. From service providers to enterprise and carriers, moving towards a software-based network needs a bit of hand holding. So where do you begin and what are the partnerships that you will need to invest in to go all IP? At Mobile World Congress 2016, GENBAND and their partners HPE, Intel and Wind River help guide industry down the path to becoming all IP.

  • The deployment phase is where Orange feels the value lies, in order to create real world solutions for optimal customer experience in the NFV space. Yves Bellago, Director of Technical and Network Strategy at Orange, tells TIA NOW why the transformation to "on-demand" is integral for carriers as they transition from POCs to actual deployments.

  • We’ve all heard about the primary benefits of NFV technologies: scalability, agility and automation, to increase time to market for our products and services. But what other benefits have emerged since MWC 2015? Miniature cloud-based replicas for deploying a steady flow of innovation into a live network can be a challenging concept to wrap your head around. Darrell Jordan-Smith, Worldwide VP of ICT at Red Hat and John Healy, General Manager of the SDN Division at Intel join us in the studio.

  • Solving telecommunications and enterprise use cases is what Dave Neary, SDN and NFV Community Strategist at Red Hat is setting his sights on. Open source and open platforms allows developers to take their source code to the service market and scale that service.

  • Moving from network lock-in to open source for NFV is partly due to do the work of Jeff Baher, Sr. Director of NFV Solutions at Dell and Chris Wright, Chief Technologist at Red Hat. Supporting software-defined networks for storage, compute and network capabilities on an open network platform has new requirements. Telcos are more than willing to welcome an open cloud platform for network communications and to further explore the benefits of open source for NFV solutions.

  • Margaret Chiosi, President of OPNFV and Distinguished Network Architect at AT&T, talks with Abe Nejad at TIA NOW about why “you can’t afford to not participate” in the advancement of the open source community.

  • The President and Chief Executive Officer of ClearPath Networks, Cliff Young, spoke with TIA NOW’s Abe Nejad about Virtual Network Function as a Service for operators as vCPE is leveraged to monetize NFV, being the fastest-growing NFV use case.

  • Virtualized compute and storage are far ahead of network virtualization, but why? Sandra Rivera, Vice President and General Manager of the Network Platforms Group at Intel, talks with TIA NOW about the climate of the open source community for Network Functions Virtualization. Rivera also offers up some real world examples of the power of NFV and why the open source approach to NFV is the quickest path to reducing the bottleneck in the network.

  • TIA will soon launch the first US-based, vendor-agnostic testing ground for NFV experiments, demos, and proofs of concepts, to facilitate industry collaboration for virtual network equipment and software. TIA’s CTO, Franklin Flint, spoke with TIA NOW about how the NFV lab will function and ultimately lead the industry for NFV interoperability testing.

  • Hassan Ahmed, Chief Executive Officer of Affirmed Networks tells TIA NOW how the CAPEX and OPEX benefits are just two of the drivers for NFV technologies. Ahmed adds that NFV has moved beyond the packet core and now into the IMS and Wi-Fi access space.

  • Prodip Sen, Chief Technology Officer of the NFV Business Unit at HP, tells TIA NOW about the story behind how the industry matured towards NFV deployments. So how do you get NFV into your network?

  • Mark Russinovich, Chief Technology Officer of Microsoft Azure, tells TIA NOW what SDN means to the Cloud, and how the industry can take advantage of virtual networking technologies.

  • Hassan Ahmed, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Affirmed Networks, talks to TIA NOW about the promises of NFV including a 70% reduced total cost of ownership. Ahmed says, "You are wasting money if you are not doing it [NFV]."

  • Guido Appenzeller, Chief Technology Strategy Officer of the Networking & Security Business Unit at Vmware, tells TIA NOW why the mechanics of SDN is not the hot topic anymore. Now, the industry wants to know the true impact of virtualized networks on the future of existing and emerging markets. Appenzeller is one of the pioneers of SDN technology protocols and architectures, spanning back to his days as a professor at Stanford University working on the OpenFlow development project.
