But what do SDN and NFV mean to the daily operations of the communications service providers that provision and manage everything from new subscriber phone lines to global corporate data services? Service Provider IT Report, a Light Reading community, will provide the answers in an online radio show scheduled for Wednesday, January 29, 2014, at 2:00 p.m. EST: "Service Fulfillment for the SDN/NFV Era."

Analyst Ari Banerjee of the research firm Heavy Reading will be the special guest on the radio show, discussing service fulfillment in the SDN/NFV era and answering questions from site editor James Connolly. The radio show will feature a 30-minute live interview and an additional 30-minute text chat session on the SPIT Report website (www.serviceprovideritreport.com).

Banerjee will discuss the benefits and challenges that SDN and NFV present for managers of operations support systems (OSSs) within telcos and other service provider organizations. He will explore the potential for SDN and NFV to revolutionize the way providers deliver new services, accomplishing in hours or days what once involved weeks or months of work.

Banerjee also will discuss topics such as how service providers can address service assurance requirements, as well as how OSS software systems have to adapt to the SDN/NFV world as new standards take shape.

"In recent months, the role of SDN in the corporate datacenter has taken shape, and NFV has moved closer to being ready for pilot projects on broader networks. Communication service providers will have to utilize both technology concepts in their own datacenters and networks," said Connolly. "We are in an era when wireless services have to be dynamic, and corporate cloud-based services have to be enabled with an air of immediacy. SDN and NFV promise to change the way services are delivered throughout the service provider's network."

"Service Fulfillment for the SDN/NFV Era" will address the questions of IT and networking professionals throughout the service provider sector. For more information and free registration, go here: http://www.serviceprovideritreport.com/radio.asp?doc_id=562308&cid=PR-012314.
