The Journey to NFV: HP OpenNFV at Mobile World Congress


If you're heading to Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, we'd love to meet with you to discuss the “new business of the network” and what that means for all of us.       


MWC is a great place to see all kinds of news and examples of innovation, but would any of that cool technology happen without the carrier network?  Of course not! That's why the carrier network is a big focus for HP at MWC.


The network is where some of the most critical innovation is happening, and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is making it possible. Come visit us at Hall 3 Stand 3A20, and we'll walk you through a journey on how to create an agile, revenue-generating network enabled by NFV.  The journey includes:

  1. Your partner ecosystem -- No one vendor will provide everything you need for your journey. To provide you with the flexibility you need and prevent vendor lock-in, we’ve partnered with leading technology companies. Visit our booth to see how we’ve integrated them into our architecture, and get to know some of the application partners who have joined our partner program. In addition to the eleven demos you'll see in the HP booth, we also invite you to come visit some of our application partners in our HP OpenNFV Application Partner Showcase in Hall 2 Stand 2D50.  You will have the opportunity to see demonstrations from Brocade, ConteXtream, Genband, Linker, Mavenir, RAD, Riverbed, and Sonus.
  2. Openness -- To deliver innovative services quickly, you need an ecosystem that works together to deliver production-ready solutions that work with your legacy systems. In addition to seeing our open architecture and open partner ecosystem, stop by our booth and learn about our leadership roles in standards organizations, including ETSI, CloudEthernet, OPNFV, Open Daylight, ONF, TMForum, and OpenStack. Prodip Sen, HP’s CTO of NFV, is Chairman of the quickly growing OPNFV consortium.
  3. Carrier grade capabilities -- In our booth you will see how we are partnering with Wind River to integrate their KVM and Linux carrier grade capabilities into Openstack.
  4. Management and orchestration -- Be sure to check out our MANO (management and orchestration) demos in the booth, because they're critical as you work to bridge current infrastructure with new.
  5. Getting you to the cloud -- We are taking our leadership in cloud and OpenStack and applying it to the carrier network. This is the point of the journey, to bring you to a place where your agility meets customer needs. 

We'll be onsite at MWC to discuss how we can help you bridge your current network needs with your future needs, and apply the value of IT open source approach to the carrier network in an environment that is open and full of new revenue opportunities. 


We hope to see you in Barcelona.
