About this talk

In the new age of technology, customers increasingly need to deliver services on a platform defined by flexibility and agility. The future promises to enable this with a mass transformation to more attractive, hardware-free, network-solutions. We’ve already witnessed the arrival of Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) — moving away from the necessity for box connectivity and towards an array of virtualised services across a software-defined network. But when the global NFV/SDN market is set to grow at a CAGR of 25 per cent between 2018 and 2023 , how can we expect the network evolution to continue into the years ahead? With the emergence of IoT, the growth of 5G capabilities and the unbounded possibilities of edge computing, the future of the virtualisation marketplace becomes a huge and exciting unknown. How can businesses cater for such disruptive and expansive transformation? Watch our video to discover how our experts view the future of virtualisation.
