Virtualization at Scale: How to Operationalize & Commercialize
Date / Time: Tuesday, June 28, 2016, 11:00 a.m. New York / 4 p.m. LondonOverview:
Service providers are looking to virtualization as a means to enable innovation and competitive differentiation by introducing new services faster and more aggressively. Yet the challenges of commercializing and launching full-scale software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) initiatives still persist. Service providers often encounter a number of roadblocks on their virtualization journeys, including long cycles for bringing services to market due to manual processes and inflexible BSS/OSS, high maintenance costs, the lack of a centralized point for responsibility and expertise and an overall misunderstanding of crucial information or standards in the industry.
To address these complications, service providers require lifecycle automation, plug-and-play business enablement tools and centralized governance for their SDN/NFV operationalization programs. But in order to unlock these capabilities, service providers need a strategy that encompasses a complete virtualized infrastructure stack, a full suite of professional services, end-to-end lifecycle service orchestration and management as well as an agile platform for developing future products and services.
NEC's and Netcracker's Agile Virtualization Platform and Practice (AVP) is a powerful combination of tools, processes, best practices and professional services that enables service providers to increase operational efficiency and reduce time-to-market. It also helps service providers minimize integration costs; leverage open source-based technologies; and optimize service planning, deployment and usage.
Join Netcracker and Heavy Reading for a thought-provoking webinar on agile virtualization during which Netcracker will chart the course for operationalizing NFV. From theory to deployment, Netcracker executives will examine the next steps required for service providers to not only bring NFV to life, but also best practices to monetize it.
