The Business Potential of NFV/SDN for Telecoms
How a Network as a Distributed Cloud can Reshape Itself to Better Serve Customer Applications
At its simplest, NFV is about decoupling software from hardware and enabling the implementation to run on a farm of commodity hardware. In other words -placing network functions (NF) in the cloud.
From the perspective of network operators, the new technology entails the ability to become a real cloud provider in a new sense, where a network is no longer simply an access network to data centers. On the contrary, the network can become a cloud serving as a platform for customer applications, and it can dynamically reshape its architecture to meet customer needs.
