A majority of functions in today's networks are immediately suitable for virtualization in NFV architectures. And for these functions, service providers already have PoCs and even some live deployments in production.

However, some networking functions such as IP media processing have always required intensive processing power and stringent response times, dictating purpose-built network elements. So how do you virtualize the tougher network functions at scale? How do you go about delivering high performance media processing into a virtualized world?

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • State of the nation regarding virtualized network functions; which functions have been easy to virtualize; which functions are tougher to virtualize.
  • The unique and challenging requirements to deliver real-time IP media processing, including transcoding, transrating, media mixing, and media clip conversion, for today's interactive voice and video services such as VoLTE with EVS codec, VoWiFi and WebRTC.
  • Considerations and applicable standards when implementing IP media processing as Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs) in an NFV architecture.
  • Opportunities for acceleration technologies in NFVI to augment the processing power required to deliver media processing in NFV architectures.
  • Case studies of progressive service providers who are tackling the challenges of virtualized media processing, and reaping the economic benefits today

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
