VMware at MWC: Making the most out of NFV

In the run up to Mobile World Congress, we spoke with Honoré Labourdette, VP Global Market Development, Telco Business Group, VMware, to get the latest on the state of the global telecoms industry and how it is currently benefiting from virtualized environments.

It’s no longer a question of if the telecoms industry will shift to virtualized environments but a question of how and when. After all, there are many unique ways that telecoms operators can benefit from it in the future – including with the Internet of Things (IoT), ultra-high definition 4K video and 5G.

But what about the here and now? That is something I would like to like to explore in this post, after all, there are certainly plenty examples of best practice when it comes to deploying VMware NFV today. For example:

  • North American operator MetTel which has placed virtualization technology in its core network. It enables MetTel to provide a stable/trusted bandwidth to its customers as well as greater flexibility by allowing the operator to utilise different transport mechanisms, configured on-demand.
  • Ooredoo Kuwait, which has worked with VNF and cloud partners to seamlessly transfer its production IT environment and conduct its first VoLTE call.
  • Manx Telecom, which deployed a virtualized fixed-line IMS solution to deliver its entire suite of multimedia residential and business communications.
