Virtual network functions in modern teleccomunications
The great changes that come with the move to virtualized software solutions running on general computing hardware will pave the way to the future networks of tomorrow. Moving away from hardware-locked network functions has allowed telecommunications service providers to drastically reduce time-to-service (TTS) and OPEX, at the same time increasing flexibility and resilience. The Virtual Network Function (VNF) vendor ecosystem continues to mature as third party developers grow accustomed to the virtualization shift, with several service providers having already virtualized more than 60% of their networks. With 5G on the way, Mobile network operators are designing and building their radio access networks from the ground-up to fully leveradge the benefits of SDN/NFV.

Carrier Cloud Computing: Datacenter economics for CSP’sCommunication service providers have been evolving their networks into more flexible, robust software-centric systems. the hardware-agnostic elements of virtualization have allowed CSP’s to build networks ontop of commodity x86 hardware, benefiting from economies of scale much like cloud service providers with datacenters. This strategic change in networking, orchestration and computing opens the door to incredibly dynamic delivery systems capable of shifting computing resources from the core to the network edge.

Background Maintaining the network availability has been the top priority for enterprises worldwide, as virus attacks have intensified in size, frequency and complexity. In fact, service providers have been unprecedentedly sensitive for their network protection since the first incident of
Background The accelerating roll-outs of SDN and NFV architectures by service providers have raised the discussion that MPLS service will soon come to an end. Indeed, enterprises that have deployed SD-WAN and other NFV services have enjoyed the benefits of
Network Infrastructures around the world are going through a massive transformation to keep up with the anticipated proliferation of Internet of Things and to enable 5G wireless network based services in future not so far. Groundbreaking technologies and solutions evolving
Introduction Network functions virtualization (NFV) has come a long way from the conceptual whitepaper released in 2011 by the European telecommunications and standards institute (ETSI). Today, leading communication service providers (SK, AT&T, Verizon, Deusche Telecom to name a few) have
The Network functions virtualization (NFV) movement came about as a way for communication service providers (CSPs) to overcome issues with vendor lock-in, new service deployment agility, flexibility and management and organization (MANO) issues. With major collaborative open source projects and
