Paul Parker-Johnson of ACG Research described the role of the network edge for service enablement, and how business networking has reached an inflection point where using open, cloud-native designs now yields the right order of magnitude improvements in cost-effectiveness.
Chandresh Ruparel from Intel talked about the importance of common infrastructure and software scalability across cloud, and edge for service innovation and agility. He also explained the role played by initiatives such as the Intel Network Builder community, and the Intel Select Solutions for NFVI.
Nicolas Bouthors, NFV CTO at Enea discussed how a lightweight NFVI software platform based on open source can provide the foundation for vCPE agility and innovation, with high networking performance, mixed virtualization technologies (KVM and/or Docker containers), complete VNF lifecycle management, and value-added Service Function Chaining (SFC).
During the webinar, three questions were answered by a highly qualified audience of solution vendors, Systems Integrators and service providers.
