Virtualization is now widely accepted by the global telecom world. Telco data centers and edge locations have successfully adopted and integrated virtualization technologies into their infrastructure. However, making the business case for virtualization in distributed enterprise branch locations has long posed a challenge. Until now.

In this webinar, Sylvain Quartier, VP Marketing & Access Product Strategy at Ekinops; and Roy Chua, Founder & Principal at AvidThink, will discuss how ROI uncertainty for branch virtualization can be eliminated, using real-life examples of how Telcos have successfully implemented commercially viable virtualized platforms at the enterprise edge. The session will also explore the importance of openness, as well as how new virtualization strategies are enabling enterprises to lay the foundations to start rolling out quality, extended edge computing experiences in the future.
