2019 Key Focus Areas

The Road to 5G

With some 5G Deployments scheduled for 2019, and many more coming in 2020, this year will be a critical one in the development and deployment of NFV & SDN with CSPs needing to get their Virtual Infrastructure in place to build out and monetize 5G’s potential

Cloud Native Infrastructure

Virtualized Networks need to be more agile than their predecessors, and be able to spin-up services faster than ever before to meet the demands and expectations of Telco’s customers.

Advent of New Services

With the increasing development of NFV & SDN we are seeing a wave of new service offerings from Security as a Service to SD-WAN, and with our forward looking Edge Computing & Network Slicing content we will cover the new services still to come.

Network Automation

A key metric for Virtualized Networks is how much they can be automated to lower OpeX and improve customer satisfaction. Find out how far your peers have got, and how much further you can incorporate AI & Machine Learning into your Network.

Open Source Models

How is the industry driving a standardized, multi-vendor network? What are the steps to ensure maximum interoperability along the entire value chain? What are the parameters to measure the success of disaggregation principal integration?

Realising ROI

NFV & SDN have been in Development for over 6 years. It is time to evaluate what have been the lessons learned, and assess the balance of profit and loss. We look at what invaluable experience & ROI Operators have gained, and which questions still need answers.
