NFV interoperability is stalled and may be causing operators to forego deploying NFV.
Network Functions Virtualization
Network functions Virtualization (NFV) offers a new way to design, deploy and manage networking services. NFV decouples the network functions, such as network address translation (NAT), firewalling, intrusion detection, domain name service (DNS), caching, etc., from proprietary hardware appliances, so they can run in software.
SDxCentral's experts continually curate a collection of NFV articles, white papers, videos and other resources to make it easier for members to learn about the concept, use cases and technology.
SDxCentral's Network Functions Virtualization Report provides a great reference resource on the key capabilities to look for in NFV components and solutions and what different NFV companies are offering.
