Affirmed Networks, a company that specializes in virtualized mobile networks, has announced the opening of its new network function virtualization (NFV) Center of Excellence in Dubai to support the growing demand for NFV networks among operators in the Middle East, on February 13, 2018.
NFV has become one of the most important technologies shaping the future of public networks. Operators continue to embrace NFV globally as they transform their networks to create the flexibility necessary to deliver innovative revenue generating services.
The new Dubai Center will serve as a resource for the company’s existing and prospective customers in the region. Beyond today's NFV deployments, network transformation will be critical for successful 5G evolution. According to the GSMA, markets in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), will be among the first countries globally to launch commercial 5G networks.
Affirmed Networks' Dubai NFV Center of Excellence will provide operators with proof-of-concepts, best practices and pre-integration testing for the deployment of 4G and 5G virtualized applications, including virtualized packet core, network optimization, M2M/NB-IoT and ePDG.
The company has taken this step to accommodate mobile operators in the Middle East, who are aggressively making the move to NFV.
