Jason Hoffman, VP, Head of Cloud, Ericsson
NFV is all about developing a common software and hardware platform, for different applications to run on top of them. But why virtualise? The technology has been around for a long time in the IT/PC space, but not in telecoms. Agility and flexibility are the main requirements now, as use cases change. The need for openness and to ensure cross platform compatibility between vendors is a new challenge for telecoms vendors.
