BT's Sabey: NFV Is Changing the Conversation With VendorsDENVER, 10/6/2017 – Jim Sabey, head of connect and compute sales specialists at BT Americas, talks with Light Reading's Carol Wilson about how virtualization has changed the telco's relationships with its vendors during this video from Light Reading's NFV and Carrier SDN event in Denver.
