  • How to Commercialize SDN/NFV at Scale
    • SDN and NFV can be a conduit for quickly delivering innovative new services, driving cost and inefficiency out of operations and creating a new, more flexible operating model. However, to harness this potential, we need to shift the conversation from "Is the technology ready to move forward?" to "Is your business ready to move forward?" 
    • Netcracker will provide a practical, step-by-step guide on what we believe is the near-term opportunity to commercialize new enterprise services, create software-defined transport networks to drive efficiency and lower costs and develop a blueprint for automating today's modern service provider operations.
