VMware Continues to Drive Momentum for NFV in 2017


It seems hard to believe that it’s already been a year since our last VMworld in Europe. Since that time, the VMware Telco Group has had a remarkably exciting and productive time. We have been hard at work helping our Communications Service Provider (CSP) customers with the right infrastructure for deploying a wide range of applications and network functions spanning IT, cloud, mobility, and core and edge network services.

It is with great excitement that we are witnessing CSPs embark on a journey of digital transformation with the goal of participating in an evolving cloud economy. Historically, CSPs have been critically important network and infrastructure providers for enterprise and consumer applications. This old era of providing just the “plumbing” underneath is rapidly coming to an end; a new era of agile service delivery is fast approaching with technologies like Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN). 5G wireless will be a critical driver leading CSPs to virtualization at an ever increasing pace.

At VMware, we have made great strides with our NFV momentum. We are now approaching almost a hundred production deployments, spanning more than 50 CSP operators globally, and servicing over 300M mobile subscribers. And, frankly, the best is yet to come.

The opportunity 5G wireless presents for enterprises and consumers is enormous. By design, 5G goes hand in hand with virtualized infrastructure; nobody knows virtualization better than VMware. With the new innovations, customer announcements, and partnerships introduced today at VMworld Europe 2017, we are delighted to continue VMware’s leadership and success now with operators in driving NFV momentum worldwide. Here are some significant recent points of interest.
