There is now no dispute that the wide spread acceptance of the smart phones in the last few
years is currently transforming the mobile communication networks. One aspect is related to the

This talk will discuss two technology trends that will become paramount in the future of mobile 
communication systems: Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking 
(SDN). Together they arguably represent the biggest advancement in the mobile communication 
network architecture in the last 20 years, and are fundamentally changing how network services are 
provided. It is the key enabler that will allow the network to be more nimble, flexible and scalable. It 
gives a unique opportunity to re-architect the mobile network to efficiently offer the services in the 

The industry has already moved strongly in this direction; the creation of OPNFV in September of

increase the rate of innovation, equip the industry for novel business models, and speed up the 
development of the ecosystem that will enrich our lives.
