NFV, SDN & Data Centers

Telecom operators and Enterprise Data Centers are experiencing unpredictable traffic patterns that demand high network resources to deal with random peeks. The traditional way to alleviate the problem is to spent monies to scale network infrastructure to meet such high demands. This may result to underutilize and waste network resources. Therefore, new technologies, including Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN), have been emerged to replace old ones. These technologies take an advantage of network software and virtualization advances.
