Carrier-Class Environments for NFV Lifecycle Management- Overture & Wind River Webinar

2,041 views

Published on

This Intel Network Builders Webinar is on Carrier-class environments for NFV lifecycle management. Communications service providers see the strong business upside from deploying NFV-based services. NFV promises to lower costs, simplify network operations, and usher in a new era of rapid service innovation. However, there are still concerns about running mission-critical, revenue- generating network functions as software applications on general purpose compute platforms rather than purpose-built appliances.

Intel, Wind River and Overture explore what is required to create a carrier grade, high-performance environment for hosting virtual network functions (VNFs).

Learn how to:
• Create a high-performance, high reliability NFV infrastructure
• Identify essential attributes needed for carrier-class management and orchestration
• Optimize the placement of VNFs and the benefits of distributed and centralized models • Support the complete service life cycle in a VNF-agnostic service environment
