Carrier Grade NFV in the Era of the Internet of Things

About this Webinar
Carrier grade functionality, a tried and true concept in the telecommunications industry, has kept the network up an running for years. As we place calls, stream video, and send data of all kinds, we’ve come to expect the network to be “always on”. But now, telecom is entering a new era of communications driven by the Internet of Things (IoT). New technologies, bigger challenges, and the need for more services are changing the game. And now, the network must evolve to serve as the critical infrastructure supporting billions of connected sensors, devices, and machines sending and receiving data and information. Emerging as a key enabler of this new critical network infrastructure is carrier grade network virtualization and network functions virtualization (NFV).
Join Wind River for a lively discussion on what it means to be carrier grade in the era of the IoT. We’ll take a look at the five characteristics of traditional carrier grade networks and how each is evolving and being applied to NFV. We’ll also take look at the different NFV use cases requiring carrier grade functionality and how network equipment providers and service providers are using these implementations to build the critical infrastructure supporting the yet to be defined world of IoT.
