Since ETSI set standards for NFV six years ago, the technology has yet to reach its full potential as operators get stuck on physical limitations.
VNFs that leverage the latest server technology and are architected for high data plane throughput are the best path to building the high-speed, high-capacity networks that 5G will require.
Following the precedent set by other modern technologies in India, SD-WAN will render MPLS obsolete before it even gets a foothold.
During the last five years, the NFV market has been heating up, but in order to reach the next steps of innovation and growth the market must fill a number of technological gaps.
The rapidly evolving threat environment, coupled with a more vulnerable enterprise network signals a paradigm shift in how organizations will protect data residing on multi-cloud systems.
Assurance solutions must be flexible enough to manage change while working toward network virtualization.
Standards — once critical for achieving interoperability — have failed to adapt.
Hardware isn't going away. But software is where all the action is.
Is session-based signaling in the future for SDN and NFV architectures?
With all of the potential upsides that NFV offers for IT operations, why aren’t enterprises pulling the trigger?
What the modern MNO will need is a virtualized mobile core.
It’s important for operators to remember that not all open software is created equal.
The goal is to transform the telco network into a cloud-centric platform.
Moving to telco cloud positions allow CSPs to participate in the hyper-connected world, today and in the years ahead.
