The Opportunity of NFV for Telcos: Update from HP Discover

ajeter on ‎06-12-2014 12:48 PM

Werner Schaefer, Vice President of the HP NFV Business, and Julia Ochinero, Marketing Director for HP NFV, sat down this week at Discover 2014 in Las Vegas to provide an update on the HP OpenNFV program, which was announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February.   


In this video, Schaefer shares that HP is well down the road in establishing the NFV lab program, where ISVs, carriers, NEPS – a whole ecosystem of partners – will come together to help carriers adopt NFV quickly.  In fact, by September 1, we will be live in all regions – adding new locations in Israel and Korea to our already established roster of labs in Houston, Texas, Fort Collins, Colorado, and Grenoble, France.  HP has been inviting ISVs to bring their applications to our labs, in order to demonstrate that these apps behave well in a virtualized environment – which is exciting news for operators.
