Jean-Philippe Goyet, Director of Product Marketing - Telco Edge Cloud Business Unit, VMware

The communications industry is at a critical point in its transformation as innovations such as 5G and edge computing are being planned and progressively rolled out. Virtualization, and now the telco cloud, act as a foundational component of this transformation with the promise of enhanced service experience, complete resilience, operational agility and optimized capital expenditure. This is a radical departure from the traditional, single-purpose hardware appliance model. CSPs now have to design and operate their services across a web of data centers bridging physical and virtual ecosystems while enabling interoperability across competing vendors. Designing and managing services requires the coordination of multiple VNFs. An automated approach is needed that abstracts the multi-cloud complexity and removes tedious manual tasks to achieve network transformation and operational efficiency.

On this webinar you will learn about:

  • The state of MANO in the market and the transition from NFV to telco cloud
  • The growing need for cloud-first orchestration
  • Telco cloud orchestration capabilities and applications
  • VMware's recent announcement about Project Maestro
