Telecom Software Series: Virtualizing The Network - Virtualization, NFV, & SDN
Software is becoming an increasingly important component of wireless network deployments as mobile operators look to trim the billions spent on rolling out advanced, next-generation networks. One of the ways carriers are looking to cut costs is through the use of virtualization, software-defined networks (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV).
As part of its Telecom Software Series, RCR Wireless News will take a look at where companies are today in the use of these technologies, the players involved in providing these services and the impact these services are expected to have on deployments.
What You Will Learn:
A look at new software technologies, including defining the components of the “programmable network,” a look at some of the players in the space, timing of deployments and the impact deployments will have on the market.
Who Should Watch:
Those involved with the rollout of telecommunications networks, with a focus on wireless network deployments. This includes those involved with network equipment, devices, BSS/OSS and back-office systems.
