Virtualizing the Network
Virtualizing the Network: Lowering CAPEX, OPEX and Increasing Flexibility
Stemmons B - 2nd Floor - Renaissance Hotel
Telecom service providers face the daunting task of keeping their networks at a high level of adaptability as the customer is always asking for new and better applications. The IP network is maturing while at the same time, the network of the future demands more flexibility, intelligence and adaptability.
The answer to this demand for unique mixtures of network applications is to virtualize the network by using off-the-shelf hardware that can be purposed and repurposed. For network virtualization to deliver on the promise of lowering CAPEX and OPEX, the network has to be virtualized at scale, not just showing that it can be done in a testbed.
If your company is a communication service provider you must attend the TIA Network of the Future Conference if for no other reason than to learn how the future of the network is being built upon software and virtualization of network functions and how this future is going to make your company more adaptable and competitive in the future. You'll also learn more through demonstrations and discussions about TIA's vendor-agnostic Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Lab, providing a unique benefit to the industry.
NFV/SDN topics that you will learn more about at TIA 2016:
- How virtualization and software defined networks will decrease the amount of and investment in proprietary and dedicated hardware
- Why NFV is important to the service provider business
- How NFV/SDN makes your network more agile, programmable and adaptable and how, at the same time, virtualization will control your infrastructure costs
- How the core network of the future will make your network services more intelligent, more agile and reduce the time to market for your new network applications
- How NFV/SDN will reduce power consumption
- How virtualization and software can enable multiple applications to run on a single network appliance
