The scale and scope of the change required to unleash the full potential of 5G-capable networks is unprecedented. It requires an end-to-end transformation based on a new generation of highly agile, open, and programmable “cloud-ready” architecture that is both scalable enough to handle next-generation performance demands with extreme efficiencies and agile enough to develop and deploy new services with “push-button” ease. Verizon is an early adopter and active ecosystem partner on the path for transformation, as explained by Chris Emmons, Verizon Director of Network Planning.
Intel® Network Builders accelerates the adoption of NFV and SDN solutions in telecommunications networks and public, private, and hybrid clouds. It’s supported by a collaboration among independent software vendors (ISVs), operating system vendors (OSVs), original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs), system integrators, and communications service providers.
Telefónica Director Enrique Algaba and AT&T SEVP John Donovan discuss the role of Intel® technology for network virtualization and user-defined network cloud and how it adds performance and functionality for their network transformation.
Sandra Rivera, Intel® Network Platforms Group VP/GM, explains how Intel works with the telecommunications industry to develop optimized, integrated, and interoperable solutions for Network Transformation. Learn about Cisco and its open network architecture for communications SPs.
Learn how operators including Telefonica, British Telecom, Telenor, and Telecom Austria Group have joined with key NFV cloud solution providers including Intel, Canonical, RIFT.io, and Mirantis to form a new ETSI-hosted open-source project. The objective is fostering an open software ecosystem and cost-effective, rapid service deployment related to network functions virtualization (NFV).
