Azhar Sayeed, CISCO

08.50   Standards and Open Source for NFV
    Explaining recent developments that now enable standardised NFV solutions to be created using Open Source components. Reviewing the Standards and Software contributions that Intel is making to ensure that Open solutions are available, and highlighting partner activities to bring these to market for service providers.

Ian Bartlett, Intel
09.10   The Role of Network Virtualisation in NFV Architectures
    Emphasizing the role of network virtualisation within the NFVI layer and the consumption of services that are presented to, or required by, VNF to facilitate the portability of telco services and applications from the physical to virtual domain and/or to create new service paradigms.

Paul Strong, VP and Chief Technology Officer, Global Field, vmWare
09.30   Telefonica activities on Network Virtualisation (NFV & SDN)
    Application of Network Virtualisation technologies to transform substantially the operation of the network and the time to market for new services. Telefónica's view on the current state of these technologies and what needs to be done, based on our hands-on experience. Presenting Telefónica's activities in our recently created “TEF NFV Reference Lab”, including contributions to the open source community. PoCs and trials.

Diego Lopez, Telefonica
09.50   The SDN Role in MANO for OSS – NMS Transformation
    Model driven service abstraction layer as a path to multivendor management Leveraging SDN dynamic network view and control (with help of analytics) to implement a true real time OSS Leveraging an Open Platform to enable a true multi-vendor ecosystem Connection to Policy

Francois Lemarchand, Ericsson

10.10   Making Software a first Class Citizen of the Network
    Presenting both the details around the set of operator and open source software capabilities we have tested on our platform as well as sharing a vision as to how we see this eco-system evolving. We need to make “software” rather than a specific service, a first class citizen of the network—and that focusing on software rather than services a key way in which “SDN” should evolve.

John Leddy, Comcast
11.00   Transforming Legacy Networks into a NFV-centric Environment
    Analyzing the required evolution of packed network technology and its operation, which forms the connectivity solution for NFV, to facilitate seamless activation of virtual functions across existing networks. The requirements are mapped against presently applied operational practice und are compared to technical capabilities of existing Carrier Ethernet and MPLS-based metro networks.

Ulrich Kohn, Director Technical Marketing, Adva Optical
11.20   The Full Potential of SDN / NFV in the Enterprise Battleground
    How network functions will be deployed in the future, the distribution of network functions and the importance of dual-headed network functions in many deployment scenarios How CSPs can begin to prepare their NFV migration timeline without increasing costs and diverting away from more immediate priorities so that they can ‘activate’ NFV whenever they are ready to do so.

Pravin Mirchandani, Chief Marketing Officer, One Access
11.40   Report from a PoC: Migration Scenario
    Presenting the results of a PoC with Telecom Italia and analyzing the value that the operators got in terms of time to market and service utilization efficiency. Discussing the migration scenario from a physical to a virtualized service infrastructure.

Elisa Bellagamba, Senior Strategic Product Manager, Ericsson
12.00   Lessons from an End-to-end NFV Solution Including all Components of the ETSI NFV Reference Model
    Driving agility and improving TTM: realizing service agility and service automation across all components of the ETSI NFV reference model through catalog driven orchestration
Managing the co-existence of virtual and physical network functions in an hybrid model during the transition to NFV and SDN
Real‐time Service Orchestration & Provisioning, RT Service Chaining, RT‐OSS
The critical role of the VNF on-boarding process in enabling end-to-end service fulfillment automation

Dr. Eyal Felstaine, Vice President & Head of NFV Group, Amdocs
12.30   LUNCH
Phil Tilley, AlCAtel-Lucent
14.00   What Have We Learned from NFV PoCs?
Hector Avalos
Versa Networks


Diego Lopez, Telefonica
Maria Napierala, AT&T
Nicolas Fishbach, Colt
Stephane Litkowski, Orange BUSINESS SERVICE

15.30   Make the Business Case for NFV
    Operational processes such as scaling, software upgrading and healing are greatly simplified by NFV, which increases agility and significantly lowers total cost of ownership.
The NFV business case already flies for a single application running on the NFV infrastructure, that is, service providers can start small on the road to NFV. In the mid-term, sharing the infrastructure will provide the full benefits.

Joaquin de la Vega Gonzalez-Sicilia, Sr. Manager, Cloud Consulting Services, Alcatel Lucent
15.50   Pay-As-You-Earn - a new NFV enabled Business Model for Enterprise Managed Services
    Understanding the practical business considerations to launch NFV based Enterprise managed services and how business models will change to deliver much faster time to market, try-before-you-buy behavior for Enterprises, and new pay-as-you-earn business models for Managed Service Providers. Showing how the combination of flexible hosts, VNF orchestration, VNF licensing models and a VNF marketplace will truly disrupt the enterprise services market and provide competitive differentiation for MSPs.

MOBILE Session
16.10   NFV for Mobile Networks

Azhar Sayeed, Cisco
16.30   IP/MPLS & SDN Mobile Backhaul Deployment Approaches
    LTE, LTE-A, and heterogeneous networks are accelerating the need for flexible IP based backhaul. Looking at how Carrier Ethernet and IP/MPLS backhaul services can go from addressing LTE needs to addressing LTE-A/heterogeneous network backhaul requirements, with particular attention to wireless backhaul and SDN.

Paolo Volpato, Product Strategy Manager Wireless Transmission,
17.20   NFV: Virtualization of Basestations with OpenStack Orchestration
    With RAN evolution being driven by massive increase of connected devices and exponential traffic, it has become a priority to centralize equipment, and invest in standardized solutions. Network Function Virtualization offers cost-effective ways of managing and orchestrating the system and flexible opportunities for virtualizing basestation entities. Focusing on implementation and discuss operational challenges.

Celine Recor, Field Applications Manager, Freescale
17.40   Challenges in Turning Mobile Networks to Access Networks using SDN/NFV
    Wireless becomes key method of access to “everything”: Corporate intranet, Cloud apps, Entertainment and more.
Service orchestration must span across multiple domains: Mobile (access), Core (transport), Cloud (App/Storage).

David Alan Hughes, VP Engineering, PCCW Global
18.00   MNOs: How to Migrate EPC to a NFV/SDN Environment
    Mobile network operators (MNOs) have embraced NFV and SDN as the network evolution path forward with the virtualized evolved packet core (vEPC) as one of the first applications to test and deploy commercially. Presenting different deployment strategies to migrate the EPC to a NFV/SDN environment.

Keith Allan, Director of Mobile Packet Core Strategy, Alcatel-Lucent
18.20   Service Classifier as a Key Enabler for Dynamic Service Chaining of Mobile Services
