effectively monetize the 5G networks by enabling unprecedented
integration of end to end low network quality KPI’s with the end
consumer focused business KPI’s. In this seminar we will showcase
the approach Ericsson is taking in using Artificial Intelligence
across our portfolio to enable Zero touch, real time, end to end

model to create experiences that customers love - will be
winners. Operators will go through different journeys at
different speeds and, the current operations model used for
the last decade is not going to work well in the future.

Seminar: Get your NFV platform ready for 5G - Hear learnings from leading operators

 Date & Location:

- Session 1: 26th Feb – 12:00 – 13:00
- Session 2: 27th Feb – 15:00 – 16:00
- Ericsson hall, Multi-Purpose Room 1

- Gerry Fenney, Senior consultant, NFV transformation,
Digital services, Ericsson

Seminar summary:
The introduction of 5G and some of the features like, network
slicing, 5Gcore and distributed cloud will require a virtualized core
network in accordance with ETSI NFV.
This is a large transformation and is a challenge for most both
technically and operationally.
The NFV transformation will be a must for all eventually and we
already see benefits in terms of opex savings.
Ericsson has been working with several leading operators such as
NTT docomo, AT&T, Verizon, Swisscom, Vodafone & Telstra etc.
In this seminar we will share some insights into how to get an NFV
