Network functions virtualization (NFV) has revolutionized the way communications providers operate and deliver services. With a virtualized network infrastructure, service providers are able to move beyond traditional, proprietary hardware and achieve greater efficiency and agility, and reduce operational costs. However, the need to accommodate a wide range of potentially conflicting performance and reliability requirements on the same platform can be complex. In this interactive session, discover a holistic approach to creating a successful NFV architecture from infrastructure to orchestration to the application itself. You’ll walk away with best practices and a greater understanding of platform features and tools that contribute to service assurance, performance, manageability, and operability.
