Duration: 45 min + Q&A

Carriers are moving as fast as they can toward transforming their networks, operations, and business processes with the goals of automation and agility in a world of on-demand services delivered over hybrid physical-virtual networks. But operational simplicity via automation can only be achieved in this new complex network functions virtualization (NFV) environment if verification testing can be performed and service-level agreements (SLAs) are monitored and assured. This webinar explores the testing and assurance of on-demand services in complex NFV physical or virtual environments.

Who Should Attend: Service providers, equipment vendors, financial analysts, and the media are encouraged to attend.

Key Topics for Discussion:

  • Software-defined networking (SDN) and NFV control of service provisioning for bandwidth-on-demand (BoD) applications
