NFV Applications – Key Considerations for Profitability
Over the last few years, Communications Service Providers (CSPs) have shown great interest in Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). As CSPs move towards a cloud-based infrastructure model, there should be heightened awareness on how software-based network functionality is architected when it comes to migrating services involving real-time multimedia to a virtualized environment. In order to implement NFV successfully, CSPs should take into account a number of guiding principles including software modularity, virtualization technology, and automation. By properly focusing on these principles, clear advantages start to become possible such as more efficient scaling up and scaling out of resources, lower risk to the business, high service availability, and faster time-tomarket. This white paper will focus on the application of specific guiding principles that help maximize the profitability of NFV in the deployment of Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs) supporting IMS-based services.
