SDN & NFV are primed to transform the service provider network.
However, a change in both network infrastructure and network management philosophy are required in order to make the potential a reality. A recent survey of communications service providers suggests that enterprise switches and servers may not provide a sufficient hardware platform for the deployment of SDN and NFV within the carrier cloud and service provider’s network. So, a new and open hardware platform is required, especially toward the network core where high capacity and high reliability are essential.
This webinar will present key attributes and requirements of NFV and SDN open hardware infrastructure, explore current efforts in open hardware platform standardization for carrier SDN/NFV, and demonstrate how open hardware based on merchant silicon can provide service differentiation and high levels of performance to the SDN/NFV-enabled networks.
Telecoms.com, in association with Artesyn, and welcoming guest speakers from Broadcom and Metaswitch, will provide a backdrop to the current SDN and NFV ecosystems. Listeners of the webinar will:
- Learn the key attributes and requirements of NFV & SDN open hardware infrastructure
- Explore current efforts in open hardware platform standardization for carrier SDN/NFV
- Understand how open hardware based on merchant silicon can provide service differentiation and high levels of performance to SDN/NFV-enabled networks
