SPECIAL REPORT: filmed at ETSI NFV ISG #7 meeting, Santa Clara

TelecomTV has been reporting on the phenomenon that is NFV for the last year and it has been apparent that its benefits to service providers are clear: reductions in capex and opex and the ability to roll out new services and applications at the speed of the net. However it's also apparent that there are still barriers and challenges to uptake and implementation. Some are technical, certainly, but of more importance are the organisational and cultural hurdles that service providers will need to clear to reap the full benefits of NFV.
