How Cloud Native Should You Make Your Virtualised Networks?

Free Webinar: Wednesday March 20, 3pm GMT

Matching Virtualisation Up with Cloud services is heralded by many as the way to achieve these promised benefits Break VNFs down into containers can make them more agile and easier to scale, helping services built off them to become Cloud Native But how far should you go? Do all services need containers, and how will the move to more Cloud Native Architecture affect Telcos relationship with Public and private Cloud Providers? 

Speakers include:
  • Christopher Price, President of Ericsson Software Technology
  • Ildikö Vancsa, Ecosystem Technical Lead at OpenStack

Join us in Berlin for 2019!

The flagship event in our Network Virtualization & SDN Series finds a new home in Berlin in 2019. As we ramp up towards 5G in 2020, ensuring that networks are prepared for increased capacity and new services is paramount. Virtualization is a key piece of this puzzle. After 6 years of discussion, experimentation, and some frustration, Virtualization is now moving towards its wider implementation. More and more of the networks are becoming virtualized, with focus shifting on how best to onboard VNFs and roll out services. Increasing case studies of full and partial deployments are emerging, and the idea of fully virtualized, flexible, agile networks is becoming a reality. 

Our operator led agenda will tackle the evolving opportunities and challenges, including: NFV, SDN, Cloud Native Infrastructure, Service Assurance, Service Enablement, 5G, Open Source, Orchestration & Security. Over a successful few years this event has grown to be one of the most well respected virtualization events on the market due to it’s focussed, end-user led content and enviable operator guest list.
