With the assistance of Converge!, a respected industry newsletter that has an illustrious 20-year history in technology infrastructure, we thought it might be instructive to take stock of the current state of NFV before we all head out to MWC 2020 in Barcelona in a few weeks.
The State of NFV Resource Site provides technology readers with perspectives and insights from industry leaders like Cisco, Ericsson, Nokia, and Juniper Networks, as well as innovators in the NFV space including Comcast Business, Colt, Spectrum Enterprise, and Aarna Networks. We’ll be rotating in new content periodically from thought leaders, as well as our sponsors and partners, so keep your eye on the site as we bring you the latest insights into NFV.
It’s been over seven years since a group of telecom service providers teamed up under the auspices of ETSI to launch network functions virtualization (NFV). The subsequent years have seen much progress in the adoption of virtualization at CSPs, but also much confusion and frustration. In addition to videos that capture current views on NFV from thought leaders, you can also download our latest State of NFV report with viewpoints from leading service providers on the results of their current NFV deployments, their expectations for next-generation services especially those leveraging 5G, the benefits of open-source initiatives, and their views on key challenges ahead. The report contains exclusive content from interviews with AT&T, Colt, Deutsche Telekom, Equinix, Orange, Telefónica, Vodafone, Verizon, along with coverage of other telcos.
Our new report covers the following aspects of the state of NFV:
- Overview — NFV Today
- State of NFV 2019/2020
- Industry Trends
- Key Challenges
- Service Provider Viewpoints from AT&T, China Mobile, Colt, Deutsche Telekom, Dish Network, Equinix, Orange, Rakuten, Telefonica, Verizon, Vodafone
We would like to thank all the organizations for agreeing to speak with us about their NFV deployments and expectations.
You can expect coverage of other key trends in next-generation infrastructure over the course of the next few months including our upcoming 2020 Mobile World Congress Showcase Site with same-day video capture from the show floor, plus a conference wrap-up analysis for MWC attendees and those not in attendance.
