A series of short presentations by various speakers and organizations on various topics and technologies.
1330 - 1350: NFV Benefits and Challenges for Session Border Controllers
Micaela Giuhat, Metaswitch Networks
1350 - 1410: Examining the Winning SDN and NFV Use Cases
Abel Tong, Ciena
1410 - 1430: Upending Enterprise Data Services with an On-Demand Network
Karl May, Treq Labs, Inc.
Lecturer, University of Hawai’i, Mānoa
VP, Product Marketing, Metaswitch Networks
The session will cover:
1. New Capabilities: Virtualized session border controllers (vSBCs) can provide benefits that appliance-based SBCs can’t, enabling network operators to create new business models, reduce risk and scale their networks quickly to match demand.
2. Technical Challenges: What technical challenges do vSBCs present and how can they be overcome? This section will cover how to extract highest capacity for the SBC’s control plane and user plane in a virtual environment, in addition to presenting some possible solutions for N+K processing.
3. Field Experience: Lessons learned from current commercial deployments.
Senior Director, Solutions Marketing, Ciena
Service providers have made significant progress with respect to their understanding SDN and NFV over the past 2 years. Extensive lab trials, proofs-of-concept (PoCs), and a handful of live network commercial deployments have made it clear that successfully operationalizing SDN and NFV involves two inter-related challenges for service providers; 1) how to fit the new technologies into the company’s existing operational processes and procedures, and 2) determining the impact that SDN- and NFV-enabled services will have on the company’s business model.
This session will explore the lessons learned by the pioneering service providers who are leveraging SDN and NFV to transform many aspects of their operations and generate new revenue streams. A variety of Use Cases will be covered, including NFV vCPE (virtual CPE), Ethernet service automation, NaaS (network as a service), and more. In addition, the session will provide an overview of how the open service creation and orchestration capabilities of NFV and SDN are allowing service providers to eliminate the vendor lock-in associated with legacy network technologies.
Attendees will learn how service providers have addressed the challenges associated with deploying SDN and NFV from real-world examples. This session will be relevant to communications service provider personnel ranging from strategic planners and architects to business planners and managers.

Service providers have begun to roll out Network as a Service built on standard hardware and a programmable network platform. This programmable network enables both faster service innovation and faster time to revenue, two key elements in an increasingly competitive marketplace. We will discuss how stripping away archaic protocols and replacing these with policy based networking rules, combined with real-time analytics, migrates service roadmap control from the system vendor to the service provider.
