Dell at NFV World Congress

Dell is proud to be at the inaugural NFV World Congress taking place in the heart of networking innovation, Silicon Valley, May 5-8. Dell is excited to take part in the first conference showcasing its latest network functions virtualization capabilities and solutions.

The theme for the NFV World Congress is accelerating carrier innovation with NFV + SDN. Dell is a champion of these networking paradigms. The recently announced Dell NFV platform uses the latest server, storage, networking and software technologies from Dell combined with software from open ecosystem partners to form fully-converged, virtualized infrastructure that can execute virtual network functions (VNFs).
