NFV for Enterprise - Are we doing enough?
Many of todays NFV initiatives are Service Provider led and Service Provider focused. What about the Enterprise? What can we be doing to solve the problems faced by the Enterprise network architect today? Are current open source orchestration platforms and initiatives such as the ETSI MANO framework, OPNFV and Tacker applicable to Enterprise use cases? Do current networking models within OpenStack sufficiently address these use cases? And what about commercial SDN offerings that address VPN/Branch office connectivity? Do these fit within a model of end-to-end service orchestration that encompasses Cloud, Branch, Campus?
Join a panel of industry experts and startup founders to discuss these topics and provide community feedback.
The Telecom/NFV track is brought to you by OpenStack and OPNFV.
NFV and SDN technologies have great promise to address many of the opex and capex challenges in the carrier networking space, and we feel there is a need to better bring these concepts and technologies to the enterprise network. Attendees will gain a view of the current carrier focused NFV initiatives, gain some insight into the needs of Enterprise network administrators, and whether or not enough is being done to address these Enterprise needs.
