Disruption: Better Business Outcomes in the SDN/NFV ecosystem

Chetan Gopal | Director and Head of Software based Innovation | Verizon

 

 

New innovations are constantly disrupting the world around us, which in turn leads to new behaviors and expectations. In the case of a service provider, SDN & NFV technologies are disrupting how we bring new services to the market and also how customers are expecting these services to be delivered. It is imperative that service providers unshackle themselves from the traditional way of service delivery and be a part of this disruption – there are severe consequences where denial is not a viable strategy.

PANEL DEBATE – Upselling Enterprise services

 
 

 

Increasing the value of NG-VPN and SD-WAN services for majority end-users, as they look to migrate away from MPLS

 
 

 

Enterprise 'Bandwidth on Demand' and 'VPN on Demand' are proving to be 'Killer Apps' for SDN/NFV – and Enterprise CIOs love the increased control and flexibility of NG-VPNs. But the prevalence of MPLS and 'nailed up' tunnels undermine the benefits of resource virtualization and SD-WAN Enterprise implementations are also racing ahead of Carrier Services.

This session will discuss possible opportunities for Enterprise Upselling where Service Providers can add value to enterprise solutions with new SDN/NFV solutions.

SONATA WORKSHOP

 
 

 

SONATA – Agile Service Development and Orchestration in 5G Virtualized Networks

 
 

 

SONATA targets both the flexible programmability of software networks and the optimization of their deployments.

The project will support network function chaining and orchestration, make service platforms modular and easier to customize to the needs of different service providers, and introduce a specialized DevOps model for supporting developers.

 
 

 

SONATA workshop objective is two-fold:

1) Introducing SONATA NFV-based development toolkit and service platform and announce the release of its first version.

2) Discussing with experts the tools and processes required to drive the software development in a DevOps approach, something that is at the very core of the SONATA development cycle.

This includes the programmable functions for: supporting congestion control, providing protection/resilience, facilitating more efficient topological routing, and multi-layer management for handling configuration, performance and security. In association with ARCFIRE: Large-scale RINA experimentation on FIRE+ infrastructure

RINA provides:
- Layer 2 Agnostic Networking.
- Global layer 2 vLANs for Software Defined Data Centers (SDDCs), Cloud Providers and Network Service Providers.
- Application Specific Name Spaces for Billions of IDs.
- Inherent Application Security for Distributed Services.
- Isolated 'Network Slices' for End to End Services use that can really Guarantee QoS per slice.
