This experiential workshop helps participants grapple and better understand the essentials of network virtualization. A large portion of the day is spent hands-on, building and discussing network architecture models and technology concepts. Key architecture posters are used as aids for building exercises as well as discussions. Participants will discuss current network challenges and KPIs, what changes are being made to virtualize the network and how these changes are solving today’s challenges, and yet potentially introducing new ones.
Telecom networks are continuing to transform in fundamental ways - cloud platforms are enabling networks to be run as software-based functions. This
