Presented by

BT's network experts: Adrian Comley, Brian Lappin, Anne-Gaelle Santos, and David Llewelyn-Jones

About this talk

After more than 20 years of stability, networks are going through a period of dramatic transformation. We’re seeing lots of exciting developments in the areas of virtualisation, orchestration, service chaining and APIs, and the global NFV/SDN market is forecast to grow 25 per cent between 2018 and 2023.* Many organisations believe virtualisation will offer advantages in agility, flexibility and control, but still view it as an emerging technology with inherent risks and uncertainty. They want to know what the real potential and indeed the limitations of the technology are. In this video, our experts address some of the following major concerns regarding VNFs: •What are you trying to achieve by virtualising network functions? •What are the key things you need to consider? •What are the common misconceptions in the market about virtualisation? •What’s BT’s approach? •What are the benefits of a ‘bring your own’ VNF option? •How is the virtualisation market going to evolve? * 2019 Trends to watch: Network Services, Ovum, 15 Nov 2018, ENS004-000044
