A significant proportion of the Telecommunications Service Providers building or expanding a Network Function Virtualization (NFV) strategy have zeroed in on OpenStack as the chosen platform, and Canonical has partnered with some of the most innovative, ranging from to AT&T to Deutsche Telekom to Etisalat, in designing, building and supporting their mission-critical infrastructure. Over the last 5 years, we’ve overseen many successful projects (and a handful of enlightening — albeit painful — failures), and this webinar covers some of the key learnings we’ve gathered along the way. Topics covered include general cloud economics, telco purchasing dynamics, Virtual Network Function (VNF) maturity — and what to do about that, critical aspects for OpenStack PoCs, and a review of OpenStack architectures we’ve deployed at some of our key customers. If you care about getting your OpenStack or NFVI plans exactly right, and also, about cutting through some of the vendor-sponsored confusion out there, this presentation has a lot of field-wise information that shouldn’t be missed.
Join SDxCentral and Canonical on July 12th at 10:00am PT, as we share learnings, insights and war stories gathered from years of lighting up mission-critical OpenStack clouds for Telco NFVI.
