Network Functions Virtualization

Are you ready to get real about NFV?

On the road to NFV deployment

What does it take to go from an NFV trial to a wide commercial operation? This series of NFV eBriefs is designed to help overcome barriers to NFV adoption and accelerate transformation

What is Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)?

NFV allows network operators to manage and expand their network capabilities on demand using virtual, software based applications where physical boxes once stood in the network architecture.

This makes it easier to load-balance, scale up and down, and move functions across distributed hardware resources. With continual updates, operators can keep things running on the latest software without interruption to their customers.

Insights from leading NFV service providers

To be ready for IoT, 5G and Industry 4.0, operators need to get onboard with NFV today. Here's how first-movers are gaining market traction with NFV.
