NFV – Network Functions Virtualisation

Listening to Ivan Peplnjack’s webinar on NFV gave good insight into this new term from the ETSI. The initiation of NFV is coming from the ETSI which brought us GSM and 3GPP as well. Using virtualisation to move the networks functionality from dedicated appliances to generic x86 hardware brings much needed flexibility in network design from service provider perspective. This should then result in reduction of time to market for new apps and services.
