Virtualizing the Enterprise Edge – Paradigm Shifts in Enterprise IT
Amir Barnea, Head of Critical Infrastructure LoB, RAD
About this talk
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) has gone through interesting dynamics. From a predominately enterprise data center technology to a distributed solution adopted by communications service providers for the network edge in the form of vCPE (virtual Customer Premises Equipment). Nowadays, it’s back at the enterprise playground, as CIOs/CISOs are facing challenges concerning the enterprise edge. Among such challenges are the need to manage multiple, application-specific appliances, the diverse application mix required in different sites and the limited flexibility allowed by their commercial relationships with application vendors. Join us for this webinar in which we’ll take a closer look at vCPE and the network edge from an enterprise point of view.
What you will learn:
•The enterprise edge: Market trends, business benefits and challenges
•vCPE at the network edge: Deployment drivers, disaggregation and vSD-WAN
•Tales from the field
