Verizon aims to offer virtual network services in 30 markets by year's end

Delivering on its SDN and NFV strategy, Verizon Enterprise Solutions is launching Virtual Network Services that will enable enterprises to transition to a virtual infrastructure model.

Set to go live this fall, Verizon's virtual CPE service is a network cloud-based model where the functions are deployed on the same platform for its own SDN-based wired and wireless networks.

"This deployment of the network cloud-based solution will happen in over 30 global markets by the end of this year," said Victoria Lonker, director of product and new business for Verizon, in an interview with FierceTelecom. "We believe our offer is unique because it's fully managed as a service from the device to the application and we have a broad and growing list of vendor functions to choose from." Article
