“Telco-grade” in the cloud: deploying reliable VoIP in NFV environments
Network operators want to take advantage of the flexibility, cost savings and increased agility that Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) offers them.

Providing telco-grade services in the cloud presents a technical challenge but is achievable.
In this white paper, we examine the issues involved and show how network operators can achieve these goals.
