NFV Deployments and the Path Ahead: An Operator Perspective
Beth Cohen, Verizon; Lei Huang, China Mobile; and Randy Levensalor, CableLabs
With the drive to deploy 5G, network slicing, and the dramatic changes in network service delivery due to the global pandemic, 2020 was the year that many carriers started large NFV deployments; indicating the continuing maturation and acceptance of virtualized networking workloads, NFV architectures, and cloud infrastructures in general. As these deployments ramp up and expand, it is time to focus on tools needed for deployment in a common, shared, programmable, and automated manner. There remain significant challenges, however, to achieving this vision.
The LFN End User Advisory Group (EUAG) is publishing an NFV Testing and Automation White Paper to illustrate key insights on the state of NFV automated testing, current gaps, and industry recommendations. In this webinar, industry experts from the EUAG: Beth Cohen, Verizon; Lei Huang, China Mobile; and Randy Levensalor, CableLabs will discuss the white paper key findings and answer questions.
