  3. 3. © 2016 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. 3 NFV sounds great, but there are some obstacles
  4. 4. © 2016 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. 4 Access to NFV: Layer 2 or Layer 3? Service Provider Backbone On Net Layer 2 Off Net Layer 3 Transparent connection for virtualized services Standard for broadband access
  5. 5. © 2016 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. 5 Hosting for NFV: Customer or Cloud? Service Provider Backbone Access Access Lowest initial cost Cost scales with services Benefits of cloud (e.g., resilience, cost, maintenance, etc.)
  6. 6. © 2016 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. 6 NFV Deployment: Greenfield or Brownfield? Service Provider Backbone SDN Buildout Existing MPLS Fully automated and virtualized services Upfit of existing networks and services
  7. 7. © 2016 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. 7 The Answer to These Questions is “Both” … and those aren’t really the right questions!
  8. 8. © 2016 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. 8 The Right Questions • How can we can dynamically orchestrate NFV- based services to provide new revenue? • How can they deploy on both greenfield and brownfield scenarios? • How can we use the cloud to dynamically deliver the cloud?
  9. 9. © 2016 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. 9 Result: Success today and in the future The Right Answers • Select an architecture that is open and that supports multiple deployment options • Select partners that are interoperable • Identify an application that is contained and valuable
