Carol Wilson, Editor-at-Large for Light Reading moderates JSA's April 2017 Virtual CEO Roundtable, "SDN and NFV - Myths and Reality." The shift to Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) is at a crossroads and, as with any technology transition, most implementers are proceeding with caution. The key is determining what the current capabilities are and what can be realistically expected. This virtual roundtable features Niloufar Tayebi, Director, Global Consulting Enterprise and Cloud Services of Ciena and Dean Campbell, Chief Technology Officer of LightRiver. The roundtable both dispels the myths surrounding these two maturing technologies and provide insight on current capabilities and use cases – as well as what can be expected in the coming years.
