The Internet of Things (IoT) represents an enormous opportunity for service providers to develop new services and revenue streams over the coming years that will provide opportunities across every major vertical industry. All IoT services, however, are not created equal, as the requirements and technologies needed will vary greatly based on the needs of the actual service being delivered (for instance: video surveillance services will require different bandwidth than meter reading applications). As a result, operators will need to fully understand the technologies that are available to them to deliver services effectively and efficiently.
This webinar will examine the IoT opportunity holistically in terms of the different types of services and their individual requirements in terms of bandwidth, latency, security and reliability. We will also explore how an virtual Evolved Packet Core’s (vEPC) flexibility, scalability and ability to address different economic models have made it the ideal architecture for connecting vastly different IoT services.
Leaving the webinar, attendees will:
- benefit from an overview of the emerging IoT opportunity and what it means to operators looking to capitalize on it
- gain insights into the inherent differences between diverse IoT services and the impact these differences will have on the networks being created to support them
- learn how an virtual evolved packet core (vEPC) including NB-IoT are being deployed by leading operators to ensure the successful and profitable delivery of IoT services
Join Affirmed Networks on January 11th for the next installment of the HPE & Intel Open NFV Ecosystem webinar series and learn about the need for virtualized packet core.
