About this talk

SDN and NFV technologies are critical to the success of network and service transformation for communications service providers and enterprises. But the skills necessary to achieve transformation results are scarce. A recent MEF and Vertical Systems Group survey ranked engineering expertise and technical resources as the No. 1 business challenge for migrating to cloud-centric, dynamic network services. Research by SDxCentral, Cartesian, and others have identified SDN and NFV skills shortages as the major barriers to success. MEF's vendor-neutral SDN/NFV professional certification is the only industry accreditation recognizing the technical depth that is required in these technologies to address organizational skills gaps, accelerate transformation initiatives, and ensure competitiveness now and in the future.
