NFV (Network Function Virtualization) once predominantly viewed as a Data Center paradigm is spreading far and wide across a Service Provider’s vast landscape. Several factors such as footprint, location, availability, throughput, latency and performance are driving a broad set of varied requirements. At the same time, a subset of these requirements are driving consistency and commonalities with respect to deployment, operations and connectivity.
In this session, come join us to learn about the shape and form of NFV deployments that are evolving in an SP environment. As NFV clouds are formed in an SP’s environment, what options can be considered to drive consistency and commonalities? Are there ways to leverage the vast footprint of an SP to enable availability and resiliency of services? As NFV penetrates into the depths of an SP environment, is Edge truly a single specific location?
