Futurecom 2014 #3: Into business


This is the third of the series of blog entries on HP’s OpenNFV team experience at Sao Paulo’s Futurecom 2014, gathered by Ignacio García-Carrillo, Business Development Manager for NFV in the Americas.


Today, Wednesday 15th, as promised, I got a picture of HP’s booth and Werner was in it, but you cannot see him because he was waiting for some customers to arrive to yet another meeting.

Because Wednesday has been the busiest day at Futurecom yet: with all teams in place, customers, partners and HP have been working full steam to increase contacts, discuss deals, evangelize on new technologies and plan new business in the region. It was a day for meeting the heavyweights. Telefonica, Grupo Claro, ALU, Ericsson, Nokia. All NFV. All key discussions.

And truly on the technology side the buzz has been NFV, with a majority of presentations, meetings and panels discussing the issue. Meanwhile the business side saw plenty of chit chat on the crazy M&A situation in the Brazilian market.

All in all an exciting, complex, promising and tiring day. So after yet another excellent dinner with the team, chance to go to bed and prepare for tomorrow’s conclusion.


Boa noite from Sao Paulo, and see you tomorrow.
