With this in mind, last week we conducted a survey with more than 50 telecommunications professionals from throughout North America (and some in LATAM) to identify the key challenges surrounding the development and deployment of both SDN & NFV
The survey addresses key areas including:
• When carriers believe they will be at a point where SDN & NFV can be launched into live networks
• What the major roadblocks are in terms of the final steps towards deployment
• What are the most attractive and feasible use cases for SDN & NFV
Don’t forget, this piece was produced in conjunction with IIR’s 3rd Annual Network Virtualization Forum, North America (6-7 October, Dallas)
Bringing together virtualization and automation experts from the likes of CenturyLink, AT&T, Verizon, SingTel USA, NTT North America, Equinix, Cox Communications, Telus and Sprint, the forum will aim to answer the ultimate question; how can we make SDN & NFV a reality?
