Statement of Interest

Connecting the 5 dots of 5G - NFV, SDN, MEC, SFC and CUPS


I have more than 15 years of experience in consulting, design, implementation, and support of telecom networks.

I specialize in wireless and fixed broadband with expertise on network convergence and evolution towards 5G, enabling smooth migration of OpCos from hardware locked CSPs to Platform Providers. I have strong hands on legacy licensed technologies as well as latest NFV Core, SDN, and unlicensed bands.

I am able to apply ETSI NFV framework, together with OPNFV, and map them to 5th generation of service oriented cloud native architecture, with end-end network slicing, CUPS and MEC. On the services side, I have designed converged voice and high-speed data over LTE-WiFi, NB-IoT and have a clear understanding of Smart Home and V2X.
