Course Summary

This course is for network engineers who require a practical understanding of Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV). 

The course reviews the current NFV situation, introduces the leading bodies defining the standards and discusses the likely fields of application by examining use cases and existing Proof of Concepts (POCs).

It discusses NFV from ETSI’s perspective, particularly in light of mobile operators’ intent to virtualise their IMS networks, as well as looking at how NFV relates to other techniques such as Cloud Computing and Software Defined Networking (SDN).
