Executive Interview: HP Networking Head Talks New NFV Unit, Cisco InterCloud Strategy


What's The Aim Of HP's New NFV Unit?

This is a cross-company initiative that is essentially turning into a business unit around Network Functions Virtualization. It's across the company because HP has a very strong and broad portfolio that can address Network Functions Virtualization for service providers.

One thing you may not know is that we have a very strong telco focus already within the company. We do a very significant amount of business with carrier customers today. And the interesting thing about Network Functions Virtualization is that the focus of it is really around taking technology that otherwise would be viewed as IT technology and using it potentially to build out a revenue-generating network in the carrier world.
