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


How Does HP's NFV Play Compare To Cisco's Or Juniper's?

First, I think we have the most comprehensive portfolio available. That's very key. Whether it's the infrastructure, whether it's the virtualization layer, whether it’s the orchestration layer or the cloud, we have all of those elements. ... I would say ours is the most comprehensive [portfolio] in the industry right now.

I think the other key is our partnering, and the fact that we are partnered with NSN [Nokia Solutions and Networks], Alcatel-Lucent and with NEC, who are all very strong in this market and want to provide a solution that is about choice for their customers.
