NFV World Congress is an important event for the NFV industry, and is taking place this week in San Jose, California. One of the hottest topics to be discussed will be the advent of new hardware platforms optimized for the x86-based application space and specifically designed for Distributed NFV (D-NFV) use case where Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) are hosted on premise. I sat down with Sven to discuss Lanner and the evolution of the NFV market space.

The emergence of lower-cost, high volume white boxes along with standardized software APIs increases supplier choice and reduces risks. In order to maximize profits, CSPs need to use the most cost effective solutions on the customer premise, and increasingly, they are using universal customer premise equipment (uCPE).

5G Around The Corner - In 2017, the first set of 5G specifications for standalone operations, also known as R15 (Release 15), was matured and approved by 3GPP Technical Specifications Group, who also announced the launch of “Phase 2” of 5G specifications, called R16 (Release 16), which goes beyond standalone operations. These moves are seen as the major work plans towards the pre-scheduled timeline by 2020.

In our last post, we talked about the benefits of network function virtualization (NFV) for service providers. Taking a step further, we’ll now examine how providers that deploy NFV can further benefit from this rapidly growing industry trend of evolving previously hardware-centric networks by leveraging security technologies into software-based services.

NFV and SDN have been matured over the years and we have seen Service Providers migrating their customers to the new business models enabled by the capabilities of this flexible and elastic network architecture. Several aspects of the network transformations are very well addressed but others are still causing hesitations on the execution of rolling out new services in the carrier and enterprise network. The ultimate goal remains to simplify the network and build dynamic networks where physically purpose build appliances for WAN, Firewall and Router applications are provisioned in a virtual environment with the same level of carrier grade functionality and greater flexibility to address the network demand. To get there, the telecom industry is has created several initiatives to standardize on these efforts of network transformations and address multiple deployment models for the end-to-end Software Defined Infrastructure.

Since the beginning of “Post-PC Era”, we have seen people using mobile devices like smartphones and tablets and they have become more focused on Apps and cloud services to perform their tasks. This explosion of mobile devices and cloud contents require enterprises and service providers to synchronize their information and services seamlessly in order to stay competitive in the market.
