Cisco: Accelerating NFV Deployments on OpenStack

NFV and SDN are disrupting the way SPs and Telcos deliver services to their customers. Hyper-connectivity and innovation driven by openness (OpenStack) are lowering cost of investment while accelerating time to market. In this session, we’ll cover NFV basics, how it differs from cloud computing, how SPs/Telcos are approaching NFV, what problems SPs are trying to overcome and how they are deploying NFV.

Cisco is helping accelerate this transformative journey by driving the ecosystem with an open and agile NFV framework and architecture. We’ll cover how Cisco NFVI is enabling this transformation across different use cases in a highly performant and secure way with a carrier class infrastructure solution and we’ll share a deployment case study that will leave you with a deeper understanding of the many choices a SP/Telco must make to achieve success.
