Service providers are evaluating evolved packet core (EPC) virtualization as a key network evolution strategy. Network Function Virtualization (NFV) breaks the traditional linkage of function and hardware in the EPC, and promises the advantages of rapid and infinite scalability and performance, on low cost hardware.

Control plane virtualization – including functions such as PCRF, HSS and subscriber data management – will play a key role in accelerating new service models that allow operators to better serve key customer segments such as MVNO, enterprise and M2M.

Join us for webinar that will profile the value of control plane virtualization, and the role of the elastic PCRF in enabling new services models. It will offer a perspective on key use cases, and discuss why operators should consider leveraging control plane virtualization today, in advance of a broader virtualized EPC implementation.

Hosted by Heavy Reading analyst Gabriel Brown, the webinar will feature Ragu Masilamany, Director of Product Management, Data Experience Business Unit, Amdocs.

Attendees will receive a copy of a new Amdocs sponsored Heavy Reading white paper.
