Dr. Prodip Sen to join HP as CTO of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) business unit


prodip.jpgDr. Prodip Sen is joining HP as CTO of the Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) business unit. Prior to HP, Prodip was Director of Network Architecture at Verizon, where he was responsible for providing the architecture vision and strategy for the network infrastructure.


He is currently finishing his term as the first Chair of the ETSI Industry Specification Group (ISG) on NFV. As a founding member of the original core group of individuals who created this ETSI group, he helped launch the NFV industry movement. In the year and a half since its launch, the NFV ISG has grown to over 200 member companies, has released architectural requirements and use cases, and has fostered a Proof-of-Concept (PoC) activity that currently has 18 registered PoCs. 


Prodip has also been associated with the SDN movement since its early days, and while at Verizon, was on the Board of the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) since its inception.  He is a frequent speaker at industry events, and is sought after for his clear exposition of the problems facing the networks of today, and on approaches to resolve them.  Having led architecture and laboratory activities in both the SDN and NFV domains, Prodip brings a unique perspective and a holistic approach to solving business problems. 


"Prodip is a proven leader who embodies both the carrier perspective and understanding of how to guide and influence critical industry standards," said Bethany Mayer, SVP and General Manager, Network Functions Virtualization, HP. "Adding Prodip to our team further demonstrates HP's commitment to NFV. We are thrilled to add such a talented executive to our leadership ranks."
