What are the opportunities, benefits and risks of implementing NFV and SDN?
Through its ZOOM project, TM Forum is defining the future of managing fixed/mobile and wireless/wireline software defined networks employing virtualized network functions. Software defined networking and network function virtualization will enable new business models and digital services ecosystems such as the Internet of Things.
This course is based on the latest work carried out within the ZOOM project and is largely a non-technical guide to the new world of possibilities that this transition opens-up, for all types of digital service providers, their suppliers, and their customers. How will this affect the products and services that Digital Service Providers will offer for sale to the market, that customers buy, and the level of customer service they experience? How will service providers need to change to innovate and exploit new software defined network and virtual network function technologies? What new privacy concerns and security vulnerabilities will need to be mitigated? How autonomous should orchestration be? How will infrastructure capacity planning and procurement be impacted? How will new products that utilize the new network services be defined and constructed?
Dealing with these issues head-on, this course will help anyone that is planning or implementing a software defined network or software defined data center to gain the maximum benefit at minimum risk by focusing on key issues.
