Podcast: Network Virtualization & Protein Bars

Almost everything in the next-generation telecoms world depends on network virtualization and SDN.

5G, network slicing, cloud-native deployment, SD-WAN and other key technologies transforming service provider networks all require network virtualization and software-defined networking as foundational technology to go.

To learn more about these crucial technologies, we're packing our bags for Dallas, for our cleverly named Network Virtualization and SDN Americas conference Tuesday through Thursday. Light Reading's Kelsey Ziser took a break from her last-minute organizational efforts to talk with me about the current state of network virtualization and SDN. Also: Kelsey explains why she always wants to talk about protein bars.

Enjoy this 26-minute conversation.

About the Author(s)

Mitch Wagner

Executive Editor, Light Reading

San Diego-based Mitch Wagner is many things. As well as being "our guy" on the West Coast (of the US, not Scotland, or anywhere else with indifferent meteorological conditions), he's a husband (to his wife), dissatisfied Democrat, American (so he could be President some day), nonobservant Jew, and science fiction fan. Not necessarily in that order.

He's also one half of a special duo, along with Minnie, who is the co-habitor of the West Coast Bureau and Light Reading's primary chewer of sticks, though she is not the only one on the team who regularly munches on bark.

Wagner, whose previous positions include Editor-in-Chief at Internet Evolution and Executive Editor at InformationWeek, will be responsible for tracking and reporting on developments in Silicon Valley and other US West Coast hotspots of communications technology innovation.

Beats: Software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), IP networking, and colored foods (such as 'green rice').
