Global NFV Market: Overview

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) refers to the integration of hardware and software network features on a particular virtual network. Network function virtualization (NFV) was introduced by the service operators with an objective to accelerate the deployment of services, operation, and maintenance of the network. NFV introduced significant changes in the network’s activities and implementation. NFV solutions are adopted by several telecom and cloud service providers across the globe. These NFV solutions optimize the network operations and offer improved scalability and robustness. There is a rise in demand for data center virtualization and server consolidation among organizations. The improvement in capital and operational expenditure through the virtualization of network functions is one of the primary growth factors of the NFV market. Various enterprises are significantly reducing their investment in obtaining hardware and networking modules by virtualizing their essential network functions on dedicated hardware. Due to the lower hardware infrastructure costs, new service models can be adequately tested and commercialized in the market at a relatively lesser time. Network function virtualization (NFV) also enables reduced energy consumption by leveraging the power management capabilities in modern servers and storage devices. These capabilities are majorly contributing to the rapid adoption of this technology across different industry verticals such as IT & Telecom, manufacturing, retail, BFSI, and the government sector.

Telecom service providers are deploying NFV solutions rapidly in their networks to benefit from the business advantages of improved programmability, faster service enablement, and lower hardware infrastructure cost offered by the technology. NFV allows enterprises to react to the changing market conditions quickly. To achieve a faster time to market and service alertness, the operators use NFV in combination with advanced technologies such as IoT, Wi-Fi calling, and VoLTE
