Network Functions Virtualization, or NFV for short, is transforming the global communications network. Telecom operators, along with cloud service providers and enterprises alike, are recognizing that scaling up to meet nearly insatiable network demands can only be done in a software-defined infrastructure using general purpose hardware. OpenStack has cited NFV as one of its fastest growing use cases and analyst firm IHS Markit predicts the NFV market will reach $15 Billion by 2020.
Following the open source software development model that has made Linux the world's largest and most pervasive open source software projects in history, industry-leading telecom providers joined together two years ago to create an open platform for network function virtualization - OPNFV. Since its inception, OPNFV has grown to over 50 member companies and 250 active developers.
Come grab a lunch on us and learn more about the OPNFV project and the many ways to get involved with the technical community. Space is limited so add this free lunch to your registration today! For more information on OPNFV, visit www.opnfv.org and wiki.opnfv.org.
