Super Panel

Our super panelists from Deutsche Telekom, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Intel,  Swisscom & Telefonica explore:

  • Chicken and Egg: Which comes first NFV or MEC?
  • Does MEC even need NFV?
  • Do the new use cases that MEC will purportedly enable help to justify the CSPs RoIe in NFV?
  • What are these use cases?
  • What are the challenges in creating an NFV/MEC architecture for CSPs?
  • How can they overcome them?
  • Will MEC enable CSPs to offer 5G style service
