The keynote, “NFV – A Journey to Market” will focus on the efficiencies that NFV offers enterprise IT organizations by introducing new levels of flexibility, self-service and performance. The keynote will be held on September 16 at 2:00 pm. Masergy VP of Global Technology Ray Watson will also be on hand to participate in a panel discussion entitled “Assuring Network Security in a Cloud-Based NFV Infrastructure,” which will be held on September 16 at 3:30pm.
“The promise of NFV is to extend end-user network control and configuration options, while easing implementations,” Naramore said. “For more than a decade, Masergy has been bringing this type of flexibility and agility to enterprise networks, allowing customers to reduce complexity and now with NFV—replace specialized network appliances with innovative software and services.”
NFV has been made possible by the gains in processing power of general-purpose CPUs and by the rapid adoption and maturation of Virtual Machine (VM) environments. Masergy capitalized on this trend by pioneering key NFV innovations in its network operations center and on customer networks.
