Operate your NFV infrastructure with confidence

NFV infrastructure has become the de facto choice for telecommunications service providers on their network transformation journey. Operating the new infrastructure with virtualized network functions is challenging without good operation support systems, especially during the transition phase when the services are delivered by both physical and virtualized network functions.

Service assurance is the next phase for operators moving their new NFV infrastructure to production and operating services in a fast-changing environment. 

Join this webinar series to hear how Red Hat, combined with service assurance partners SevOne and MYCOM OSI, helps service providers operate their NFV infrastructures with confidence. The 3 webinars include:

  1. An NFV infrastructure built for performance and capacity assuring your telco cloud
  2. An NFV infrastructure for the world’s first end-to-end automated telco cloud
  3. An NFV service assurance framework with at-scale metrics and event capabilities

WEBINAR 1: An NFV infrastructure built for performance and capacity assuring your telco cloud 
As telecommunications service providers migrate their services to NFV infrastructure, service assurance and compliance become critical to maintaining customer satisfaction. You need a solution that addresses performance at every layer of your telco cloud.
