Our workshop will provide a practical, step-by-step guide on what we believe is the near-term approach to enabling end-to-end operations and partner management. We will also be joined by Evan Frith, Director of Products and Services at TELUS, a leading North American service provider, who will discuss the importance of leveraging virtualized technologies to optimize new product introduction timelines at reduced costs, bringing about new room for growth in an increasingly competitive market.

As SDN/NFV deployments continue to emerge, discussions are focusing less on pure technology readiness to whether or not the business is ready. Service providers need to deal with a new business paradigm that solves organizational issues, manages the transition from physical to virtual environments and engages in new partnership models. In this session, we will discuss what is restricting large-scale SDN/NFV adoption and best practices for overcoming the next set of hurdles.
Even though there are a growing number of commercial virtualized services, very few run in parallel with an operations environment that helps service provider lower costs and increase agility. In this session, we will discuss the new operations environments and business processes that are needed to scale virtualized services and take SDN/NFV mainstream.
There is a lot of buzz around how SDN/NFV can help generate revenue with new value-added services. But what steps must be taken for that to really happen within a timeframe that meets the rapidly changing needs of the business? In this session, we will discuss the steps from onboarding a VNF to creating a catalog-driven marketplace of commercially ready services, as well as new partnership engagement models that make this happen.
