This week we attended the TechXLR8 awards at Londonrsquo;s Tobacco Docks to celebrate innovations by leaders in the converging areas of technology including 5G, virtual & augmented reality, IoT, Cloud, connected automotive and artificial intelligence.
We are delighted to announce that VMware won the award for lsquo;best use of Virtualization technology 5Grsquo;, seeing off stiff competition from Nokia, Polystar, Mavenir, Netnumber and Accedian.
Our 5G virtualization solution, vCloud NFV, allows communication service providers to create and launch new 5G and IoT services in a much more agile, flexible, cost effective, and scalable way. This award honours our efforts towards transforming the telecoms industry and fuelling a 5G future, demonstrated by our innovative work with 45 telecoms companies across which we have more than 80 network function virtualization production deployments in place.
vCloud NFV won the award based on a submission of being able to demonstrate a strong use case of virtualized technology and details of why NFV made a significant impact on it; showcasing characteristics which make NFV unique; providing proof of the benefit to operators, with case study examples; and an explanation of the KPIs by which success has or will be measured.
