Attend this exciting Virtual Edge Report webinar sponsored by Versa and moderated by SDxCentral’s Roy Chua on January 27th for a session on essential NFV PoCs. Listen in as the presenters take us through how and why network function virtualization (NFV) should be mobilized to deliver next generation managed services. They’re convinced that WAN and managed service markets are ready for the NFV transformation and will be discussing the steps towards success in a such endeavor. The goal is to speed up the development and provisioning process and cut down on infrastructure cost so that the entire service chain can serve a new profitability model.
Gear up with the architecture and business logic you need to make a business case for virtualized CPE (vCPE) and managed SD-WAN. Versa’s fundamental knowledge of the structure of service provider and enterprise-built WANs is the foundation to a new business centric and efficient architecture. The presentation will cover the network and security virtualized network functions (VNFs) that enable this new and robust architecture. If your ambition is to build intricate managed services capable of handling multiple networks and multiple functions with seamless integration, this is a webinar you will not want to miss.
This presentation, featuring Versa Vice President of Product Darell Long and Ciena‘s Senior Director of Marketing Recep Ozdag, will reflect on the significant impact the adoption of NFV has been for service providers worldwide. Specific applications, namely VNFs, have proven their ability to take managed services to new heights through more than a dozen use cases.
Use cases such as the vCPE and the managed SD-WAN making the transitions from PoC to field trials and early production deployments. However, as with any major adoption of new technology, form factor or service model, there are a lot of moving parts and challenges to creating a production-ready service. In the NFV and managed services sphere, those challenges consist of:
- The integration with existing operations support system (OSS)/business support system (BSS) environments
- Setting up orchestration for agile operations
- Selecting the right infrastructure at both customer premises and provider edge
That being said, a good investment in NFV can bear sizable business efficiencies for managed services. Greater agility in creating and provisioning new services, much lower total cost of ownership, increased service yields, and higher revenue generation are some, but not all of the advantages generated by an NFV implementation.
Join us on January 27th for and exclusive webinar on NFV PoCs and explore solutions that can help you adequately manage and orchestrate an NFV-based managed service offering!
