SPOTLIGHT SESSION: Is it time to collapse the NFV silos?
  • Syed Khadeer - Head of Business PLM, CloudBand, Nokia
more

Cloud based deployments of IMS VoLTE and EPC have opened gates to NFV and SDN in APAC region. Most of these deployments currently are in “vertical/silo” mode – i.e., dedicated cloud instances for VoLTE and EPC. While this is a good starting point, real value of NFV and SDN comes from a platform based approach to NFVI and MANO. Its time to move from network specific vertical cloud and MANO solutions to scalable common NFV platform, to meet the needs of 5G and IoT. Let’s understand how to manage this journey in the light of current status of NFVI-MANO solution, capabilities and challenges and Nokia’s experience in this domain.

Building next generation customer experience through AI
more

As we move into chat and voice based product interfaces and away from screens, a high shift is happening the realms of customer experience, especially in the software world. Given that users are more likely to use your product through google voice, amazon alexa, or even through mixed reality environments, the complexity of giving great customer experience at all times during a user's product journey, has become very high.

It’s no longer possible to bank on existing techniques of help and support systems where content is available on the web pages and searchable through simple indexing. If your product user is an audio only or experiential environment, then a webpage based system can be very bad as experience and cause high product drop off.

Using AI and NLP, we can convert existing content into conversation-ready content and power voice, text and other systems to answer user questions as if they were speaking to a human on the other end. This also allows for greater customer experience because the behavioral shift of users is more towards voice and chat. In voice its more towards natural understanding of commands rather than using current phone based systems.

Kontiki is a platform thats building tech to plugin to existing CMS and convert them into NLP based conversational content available for use as bots or other ways via APIs.
