2014-01-09 05:34:03 - Virtualization: Impact on Enterprise Networks and Cloud Infrastructure - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Network functions virtualisation aims to address the problems associated with large and and increasing variety of proprietary hardware appliances by leveraging standard IT virtualisation technology to consolidate many network equipment types onto industry standard high volume servers, switches and storage. These could be located in datacentres, network nodes and in end-user premises.Virtualising network functions could offer many benefits including reduced equipment costsnd reduced power consumption through the consolidation of equipment. In addition, the adoption of virtualising network functions could increase the speed of time to market by minimising the typical network operator cycle of innovation. In addition, this new architecture will enable the availability of network appliance multi-version and multi-tenncy which allows network operators to share resources across services and
across different customer bases. Sevices can also be rapidly scaled up or down as required, providing different levels of service based on geography or customer. Virtualising network functions also enables a variety of eco-systems and encourages openness.Virtualization represents a game-changer in IT infrastructure planning, operations, and management as major components (servers, desktops, storage and even entire data centers) are virtualized. The recent trend is for virtualization of key network components (routers, switches, dedicated servers, etc.), which is referred to in the industry as Network Function Virtualization (NFV).
NFV completely changes the way network architecture is viewed as fixed network elements, consisting of hardware components that are diverse in their make and configuration, is no more the design that is the norm. NFV allows an operator to optimize its infrastructure and increase service agility, representing a solution to problems that have plagued them for quite some time. NFV allows quicker time-to-market for new services because virtualized functions allow operators to introduce new services much faster and at much lower cost.
