Over the past couple of years, a significant number of NFV PoCs have achieved positive outcomes that have led to a number of initial deployments by Service Providers, in areas such as cloud VPN, virtual CPE, and mobility services around the evolved packet core.

The good news is that the open, multivendor NFV ecosystem promises great potential and new market opportunities for both new and established vendors alike.

On Tuesday, February 2, 2016, JL Valente, VP of Product Management of Cisco’s Cloud and Virtualization Group will be participating in a deep dive panel discussion, sponsored by Telecom Council, specifically related to this very topic. Some of the questions that the panel will be answering include:
• How do startups in the telecom sector compete with established vendors?
• How do big vendors take advantage of the disruption to sell a new generation of equipment and solutions?
• Who wins?

We expect this to be a very informative and interesting session, for both Service Providers and vendors.
Details about this event and how to register can be found by going to Telecom Council’s events page.
We look forward to seeing you there.
