The objective of the report is to help senior managers/product line managers achieve a practical understanding of NFV concepts, understand the nature of network function virtualization, how it can help resolve practical issues and how it could help people improve their network performance, configuration and the flexibility for function enhancements The report is also a good reference for system architects in understanding the key points of NFV and helping them to make a proper decision on network feature development
The report will initially review the history and origin of the concept of network function virtualization Then, it will explain what is network virtualization and network function virtualization, as well as the differences between them The early applications of the concept of network virtualization and network function virtualization are discussed in the report in order to help readers understand where the concept came from, how it has become so popular
The report points out that network function virtualization is a concept rather than a specific technology Network function virtualization is actually a summation of modern computing
technologies, and it is a new stage of a computing network configuration and operational model
The report also touches on radio access network virtualization (vRAN) – a hot topic that has been discussed in the wireless industry Current activities are reviewed and practical market
requirements are also discussed in the report
The report will intensively analyze the relationship between NFV and standardization, desirable conditions and practical industry realities The objective of ETSI’s NFV working group will be introduced with discussions about the reality that service operators have experienced in the past and are experiencing currently
The financial aspect of deploying NFV networks will be generally discussed to highlight the necessity and practical benefits of NFV deployments
Consumer expectation and network operators’ expectations will be briefly discussed in the report, which outlines the different level of expectations for NFV
