IoT Slam Live 2017 Session Abstract:
With new, connected cellular IoT devices joining the network at scale, carriers need to ensure their networks can cope with the new traffic mixes, provide the levels of service quality IoT demands (without putting existing voice and data services at risk), and reduce the operational costs to offset the lower ARPU IoT devices generate. Network virtualization offers carriers the potential to meet these challenges and can work in tandem with IoT to exploit the network and create new differentiated opportunities for cellular IoT. This talk examines the trends of cellular IoT and NFV, explores how successfully deploying virtualized networks can help carriers overcome the challenges of IoT, and successfully deploy innovative new connected applications and services.
