NFV in Latin America: the promise and the pitfalls

Italtel Vice President, Head of International Markets

NFV is an industry answer that enables carriers to become more efficient, flexible and speedy.

Guido Candiani – Vice-president and responsible for TI Group, Telefonica Group and the whole Latin America Region at Italtel – explains Network Function Virtualization (NFV) challenges existing between where the technologies are today and widespread adoption with a special focus on Latin America’s context.

While attempts are being made – for example, by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) – achieving this could take much more time than carriers can wait.

Such challenges, however, often breed innovation, and this is especially true in Latin America.
