The Business of NFV and SDN: Building Blocks of Digital Transformation
Voices On Virtualization 12/13/2016 56 comments
Most enterprises, whether large or small, today want to transform themselves into digital organizations. But it takes more than mobile devices, a few snazzy apps, and claiming a DevOps culture. As John Isch, Practice Director, Network & Voice at Orange Business Services explains in New IP Agency Radio's Voices on Virtualization show, NFV and SDN are critical to organizations' digital transformations – and CSPs play a key role in helping customers map out their digital futures. Join NIA's Alison Diana and Isch in an hour-long discussion of topics such as hurdles and opportunities; interoperability and integration; Orange success stories; first steps for digital transformation and measuring results.
The Results Are In: What the NIA-EANTC Interoperability Tests Mean for CSPs & Enterprises
Voices On Virtualization 11/28/2016 54 comments
Each year, service providers expend untold resources on duplicative assessments to determine interoperability between vendors' virtualization products. Eliminating even some of these tests cuts costs and time, thereby accelerating end-users’ ability to roll-out new digital services across CSPs' NFV- and SDN-powered offerings. The result? Enhanced profitability across industries, more secure networks, increased automation and new business opportunities. Working with independent third-party testing organization EANTC, several NIA vendor members recently participated in the NIA’s NFVi-VNF Interoperability and/or VNF Management Interoperability evaluations. Results will be published on the New IP Agency and Light Reading websites the week of Dec. 5th. On Monday, Nov. 28 at 2 p.m. ET, join NIA Director Jeff Hannah; EANTC Managing Director Carsten Rossenhövel and Colt Director Strategy, Architecture and Innovation Nico Fischbach as they discuss the tests, the results, interoperability costs and challenges, virtualization's many standards and what independent testing means for CSPs.

Join Victoria Lonker, director of product management for Verizon's Private IP (MPLS) software defined networks (SDN) and mobile private network solutions, as she describes how enterprises can adopt virtualized networks to realize the technology's many benefits.
