    November 22, 2016

    Cloud infrastructure and business mobility leader VMware Inc. (VMW) announced Tuesday its expanded focus on communication services providers (CSPs) and telecommunications carriers (telcos). To drive ahead the push into the communications markets, VMware will promote Shekar Ayyar to the role of executive vice president and general manager of the firm’s Telco Group. The company said in a statement that Ayyar will lead VMware in “delivering Cross-Cloud Architecture and software-defined infrastructure for network functions virtualization (NFV).

    NFV is an initiative to virtualize network services that have traditionally been carried out by on-site, dedicated hardware. In switching over to NFV systems, organizations save costs, increase efficiency and flexibility by reducing the amount of proprietary hardware needed.

    Offering NFV Platforms Worldwide

    VMware is hoping to capitalize off 400 CSPs and telcos globally, “looking to accelerate innovation and launch new services faster, easier and with less expense.” The Palo Alto, Calif.-based firm can offer CSP and telco customers a converged platform for network services and applications, integrating network, cloud, mobility and IT architecture. The tech giant boasts a multivendor and multifunction NFV platform based on VMware’s Cross Cloud Architecture. The firm hopes to expand its more than 80 NFV production deployments with leading global service providers. Currently, VMware has total of 24 certified virtual network functions (VNFs) from 20 vendors as VMware Ready for NFV with a strong pipeline of additional VNFs awaiting certification.

    "VMware is in a unique position to enable the transformational benefits of NFV for service providers given its leadership position in virtualization technology," said VMware’s Chief Executive Pat Gelsinger. “Shekar’s experience as a proven leader, with the right combination of knowledge and strategic thinking, will help expand VMware's already strong foothold in the Telco market."

    Ayyar will bring to the table more than 15 years of senior leadership experience in enterprise software, communications and semiconductors.
