Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) will impact how service providers roll out and manage services. At the same time, policy control solutions will further optimize the networks and enable service providers to add new services and revenues while providing a high level of subscriber quality of experience.

In this webinar, we will discuss how implementing a policy control solution can help drive new business models and how NFV can help deliver these services faster to market while lowering CAPEX and OPEX.
