Enabling 5G with NFV – Network Operator Perspectives
Don Clarke, CableLabs (Chair of the ETSI NFV Network Operator Council)

In October 2012, a group of 13 global network operators published an influential white paper describing their vision for the future of telecommunications networks based on technology which they called “Network Functions Virtualisation” or simply “NFV”. Simultaneously they launched the ETSI NFV Industry Specification Group which is the central body converging requirements for NFV and developing specifications which enable standards and open source communities to use NFV in a common framework. This latest NFV white paper co-authored by 23 network operators - including members of the original founding group, outlines what they see as the priorities for NFV to support 5G. This session will overview this paper and describe the rationale for the main proposals.
