Is Network Function Virtualization (NFV) a market inflection point, or just an over hyped technology in search of a use case?

  • NFV is designed to use x86 hardware, which translates to improved capital efficiencies compared with dedicated hardware implementations.
  • Software-based NFV deployment alongside real-time SDN network programing results in rapid service introduction and improved operational efficiencies.
  • As NFV enables the decoupling of network functions and their physical location, services can be instantiated at the most cost effective location, in addition to multi-site application availability, scalability and cloud burst real time deployments.
