As anticipated, NFV is moving ahead into the commercialization phase. However, it's also clear that a number of NFV operational and connectivity challenges are also now emerging due to the recent acceleration of 100G deployments in core, metro and access.

As a result, network operators must focus on not just developing NFV operational strategies, but also on developing strategies that reflect the reality and requirements of 100G connectivity, all of which adds additional complexity from a troubleshooting, monitoring, scalability and even security perspective.

In this webinar we will examine the impact that NFV and 100G will exert on networks, both from a challenges and opportunities perspective. Specific topics to be addressed include:

  • Survey results reflecting 100G deployment
  • The state of NFV operationalization
  • The role of network and security appliances in NFV virtualized networks
  • Virtualized appliance network priorities
  • Challenges in meeting network operational requirements.
