Vanessa Little, Director, Solutions Architecture at VMware, discusses her company’s role in network transformation to virtualization and the unique needs of the telecommunications market in terms of requirements in this archive of a livecast from Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona. She examines real world use cases like video transcoding at the edge and the role of multi-access edge computing (MEC) to drive traffic to the edge rather than backhauling back to the core network. Intel and VMware have a long history of collaboration. Vanessa explains current collaboration developments, including the VMware Ready for NFV program aimed at reducing VNF onboarding time.
