IDC analyst featured in webinar on the business benefits of NFV


Please join us for a webinar featuring Nav Chander of IDC on April 30 at 10am PST. The webinar will address the business benefits of implementing network functions virtualization (NFV), specifically focused on vCPE for enterprise services.


IDC performed a detailed analysis comparing a specific HP NFV vCPE use case with legacy network services. They discovered a potential TCO savings of 39-44% in implementing the vCPE solution, with significant opex savings and lower installation costs. In addition, they found benefits for the CSP's enterprise customers, such as faster service delivery and easier upgrades for additional services.

The IDC white paper has specific recommendations for achieving these benefits, including finding a vendor with:

  • A platform-based open NFV architecture that embraces the use of third-party vendors
  • Industry expertise with IT virtualization and network virtualization and can leverage open source hardware and software platforms
  • Active contributions to and leading developments in open source communities such as OpenStack, ONF, and OpenDaylight as well as contributions to advance the goals of ETSI NFV ISG and OPNFV
  • An ecosystem partner program and technical resources including interoperability labs
  • An NFV network management and orchestration platform to enable vCPE solutions
  • Extensive technical and systems integration expertise to help CSPs adapt to and embrace open platforms.

For more details on the findings of the analysis, read the IDC white paper, sponsored by HP, here and join us for the webinar.
