Service deployment through NFV may take just as long as service deployment into a physical network. Unless there are clear procedures, standards, and methods to defined, NFV may not live up to the promise of rapid and innovative service deployment, let alone cost savings. However, given the right set of tools and procedures, a VNF may be streamlined into a catalog, rapidly integrated, and deployed in a network in a matter of minutes. This webinar explores the definition of a well enabled VNF, the onboarding process into a catalog, the complete integration into a network of services, the deployment, and finally the service itself running in the network.

The key elements of the webinar include:

  • Defining the well enabled VNF
  • Onboarding and Cataloging the service
  • Model-driven, cross-layer orchestration

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
