Fuller added, "I hope to use my many years of experience of commercialization of standards to ensure that the IFA Working Group follows a pragmatic approach to deliver maximum value to the industry without delay."
"ETSI differentiates itself from other regional standards bodies because of its global focus and the fulfillment of its commitment to bring open standards to the industry," said Paul Miller, Chief Technology Officer, Networks for GENBAND. "The high level of participation in ETSI from organizations outside Europe is a true testament to the success of their approach of creating leading-edge standards and the appointment of Jeremy to chair the IFA Group really affirms GENBAND's commitment to NFV and sets us apart as a leader in helping service providers realize the benefits of virtualizing their networks. Jeremy will bring a great deal of passion and leadership to the IFA team."
In addition to the role of leading the technical NFV architecture work, the chair of the IFA Working Group also participates in the Technical Steering Committee (TSC) and leaders' discussions, which focus on the coordination of ETSI NFV's technical activities, industry outreach, and development of proposals for the strategic evolution of ETSI NFV ISG. GENBAND has been a participant member of ETSI NFV ISG since 2013 and became a full member of ETSI in 2016.
Working closely with other leading industry NFV vendor and service provider ecosystems including Intel® Network Builders, HPE OpenNFV and Wind River Titanium Ecosystem, GENBAND has quickly established itself as a leader in the Management and Orchestration layer of NFV.
