Affirmed Networks has opened a new NFV centre of excellence in Dubai. It will be led by Abir Hnidi, VP, Middle East at Affirmed Networks.

The centre provides operators with proof-of-concepts, best practices and pre-integration testing for the deployment of 4G and 5G virtualised applications, including virtualised packet core, network optimisation, M2M/NB-IoT and ePDG.

“Mobile operators in the Middle East are aggressively making the move to NFV,” said Hnidi.  “The establishment of a dedicated centre of excellence provides us the opportunity to closely partner with communications service providers to help them understand the key considerations and approaches to successful NFV deployments.”

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.”
