FutureNet World delegates to access complimentary telecoms training from Wray Castle

FutureNet World has announced a partnership with Wray Castle, which will see the delegates of FutureNet World’s Virtual Event in April gain complimentary access to 2 of Wray Castle’s live virtual Telecoms training courses, each focused on important themes at the event.

5G SBA (Service Based Architecture) Virtualizing the Core: 7th April @ 2pm-3.30pm (BST)

The Service Based Architecture (SBA), standardised as part of 5G, represents a paradigm shift in the way the telecoms core network is planned, deployed, and operated. Using virtualisation principles, the SBA provides a more flexible, efficient, and capable set of features – provided by the different Network Functions in the form of NF “Services”. SBA techniques can also be applied to 4G, and if adopted early, would enable a smooth transition to the 5G Core.

This talk examines the principles of the SBA, before looking in more detail at the architecture, network functions, protocols, and operation. We also explore the wider contexts of roaming, 4G interworking, and security in order to build a relatively comprehensive picture of how the SBA is set to impact the core of our networks.

NFV (Network functions virtualization) Deployment: 8th April @ 2pm-3.30pm (BST)

This session examines the architecture of an NFV solution along with enabling technologies and completes the story with a look at how Software Defined Networking (SDN) helps complete the NFV picture.

We’ll discuss the main drivers for NFV, including why 5G and the Internet of Things is a key factor, before discussing the NFV architecture, framework and management helps with the orchestration of automated NFV based Network Services.  A key component of any automated NFV solution is the network itself, and we present an overview of how SDN can enable truly agile, on-demand network service deployment.

Each course will be delivered as a live webinar.


“We are delighted to collaborate with Wray Castle,” said Giles Cummings, Founder & CEO of FutureNet World. “The chance for FutureNet World delegates to undertake best-in-class training before the event represents a great opportunity for them, both to prepare for discussions at the event around these themes and the wider topic of Network Automation and AI, but also to have the chance to experience that fantastic Wray Castle Trainers and content.”

Paul Mason, Training Operation Director, Wray Castle said “Partnering with FutureNet World is great way to help their CSP audience get up to speed on the latest technologies and trends in the telecoms and wider ecosystem. Along with our team of expert trainers, I am looking forward to helping event attendees learn and understand more about these core themes in the event”
