Tech Talk by Tom Tofigh: NFV: Key Driver for Domain 2.0 initiative

For this event we will be hosting Tom Tofigh who will delve into Domain 2.0 concepts and architecture.

Synopsis

NFV and SDN are new ways of thinking about networks and services deployment.  Networks are becoming both the computer and the adaptive cross-layer network architecture that provide programmable NFV building blocks for service abstraction. The network is fundamentally responsible for processing massive amount of flows that extend beyond layers 1-3.

Tom will start his talk on AT&T Domain 2.0 objectives and how it will benefit the end users.  He will then elaborate on Domain 2.0 architecture concepts and needs from service providers perspectives.  Tom will conclude his talk with a few NFV application examples such as Big Data, M2M, Traffic Shifting and service-chaining models.
