Improve Network Performance and Accelerate NFV Deployment
Date / Time: Thursday, August 27, 2020, 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m. London
Service providers and enterprises are on the journey to transform their networks using NFV/SDN. As they progress along this path, many are adopting a cloud-native architecture while beginning to transition their networks to 5G. During this transition, companies are continuously challenged to maximize performance as they deploy NFVi on standards-based hardware.
In this webinar you will learn:
Analyst view of 5G demands on successful NFVi deployment
How programmable acceleration can enhance the performance for 5G and NFVi
What SmartNICs are, and how they can be utilized across the network
How HCL’s NFV Acceleration software products for SmartNICs solution improve network performance while lowering your TCO by up to 35%
