The race to 5G, IOT and smart and intelligent connections is underway and many operators are banking on a bright future as they blaze the path to make this brave new world a reality. To accomplish such major investments in network infrastructure have become mandatory and NFV is foundational to the creation of this new world. This webinar will examine how NFV has and is setting the stage for a new reality. First, the speakers will review key lessons learned while sharing the current state of NFV deployments. Next, the webinar will gauge how operators are looking to move to cloud-native network functions and automated service assurance that will open new business models and drive more revenue. Finally, by examining real-world examples, we can study how to drive cost savings and efficiency into the operational aspects of the network while launching new and innovative services brought to life by 5G and IOT.
