The intersection of cloud data centers, with improving device capabilities, is spawning a new generation of service innovations. Communication Service Providers (CSPs) are looking to both Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to increase service creation agility and flexibility, while delivering improved operational efficiencies.

As CSPs look at making investments in SDN and NFV, a good SDN architecture is essential to maximizing the benefits of your NFV investments. So what are the key considerations in combining the two approaches to economically support and monetize the forecasted growth and variety in value-added services, towards generating new revenues?

In this webinar, you will learn:

• How the growing diversity of traffic types, devices and service innovations are driving an increasing urgency for CSPs to build agile service delivery capabilities with NFV.
• Essential requirements in software-controlled SDN switches for scalable interworking with NFV service delivery objectives.
• Real-world examples to clarify how SDN capabilities interwork with the NFV for achieving agile service delivery with scalability.
