The NV market continues to grow and evolve, supporting many different technologies and vendor platforms as customers look for the right mix.
It’s becoming clear that a smarter NIC will be crucial to white boxes built for NFV and SDN applications.
A wide array of supplementary technologies, including adjustments to the NIC, are being built to deliver high performance NFV for service providers.
In the move to the telco cloud, some key considerations are crucial in NFVI components selection.
In the move to the telco cloud, there are some crucial considerations in NFVI components selection.
In the move to the telco cloud and NFV, there are a number of risks associated with implementing a fully virtualized system.
Not everything has to be hyperscale. IT departments are looking at different models of modeling to the cloud, using NFV technology and microservices for different levels of scale.
Many operators view the shift to the telco cloud and NFV as a series of steps that require careful planning, not a wholesale rip-and-replace.
We shouldn’t think of NFV as merely porting a cloud to the telcos. We need to understand that true NFV won't happen until we connect all the entities involved in delivering the customer a modern, virtualized service.
Big technology shifts like cloud take at least 10 years. That’s why the shift to the telco cloud, led by NFV, will require at least a decade of patience.
The telco NFV cloud has different characteristics from the enterprise cloud – with a higher emphasis on reliability, connectivity, and specific applications.
The key to success of NFV will come soon as operators evaluate the benefits of the NFV business transformation in early rollouts including vCPE.
The data center is driving toward a more software-centric security model and security performance in NFV will be key.
