ALBANY, New York, March 09, 2016: ResearchMoz.us has featured a new market study, titled “Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Technology and Market Analysis 2015 – 2020,” to its website. The report provides a quantitative and qualitative analysis of network functions virtualization (NFV) for the 2015-2020 period from several perspectives. Technology, trends, and vendor portfolios are the major aspects that are looked into in this report.

In the computing and information technology arena, network functions virtualization refers to virtualization of hardware used for carrying out network services. The objective of deploying NFV is to disintegrate network functions carried out using dedicated hardware devices such as routers, load balancers, firewalls, etc. to be hosted on virtual machines. NFV can considerably reduce the need for proprietary hardware for launching and operating network services.

The report points out how NFV is dependent on traditional server-virtualization techniques, but also differs from those that are used in enterprise IT. Typically in NFV, the basis of the structure is a virtual machine – an operating system or application installed for imitating the dedicated hardware.

Other than this, the report discusses at length the various factors responsible for the proliferation of virtual networking over the last decade. Some of the major ones of these are the changing trends in the industry for network infrastructure, newer solutions to resolve networking challenges, virtualization, needs for virtual datacenter, storage virtualization, server virtualization, and network virtualization. 

The report, composed of 102 pages, is divided into chapters and further subdivided into sections for easy browsing. The report has an array of illustrations that depict the architectural framework and fundamentals that are common in NFV structures. Using pictorial representations, NFV infrastructure NFV case studies and NFV proofs of concept (PoC) are depicted herein.

A distinguishing feature of the report is the pin-point analysis of the deployment of NFV with the specific function that these systems were used for by major telecom and computing hardware giants across the world in 2014. For instance, Nokia networks recorded the shipping of its first commercial NFV solution, Dell introduced its NFV starter kit in October 2014, and Amdocs introduced a network cloud service orchestrator. 

The section continues with an elaborate discussion on NFV trials that were registered across the world in 2014. Some of these are Telekom Austria Group, which was one of the first operators in Europe to conduct NFV trial in the year, and NTT DoCoMo, which carried out NFV trials with a combination of six vendors. Following this, the report presents the schedule of NFV releases of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) that were recorded in 2014. 

The section concludes with a discussion on the open platform for NFV. Denoted as OPNFV (open source platform for network function virtualization), the report includes projects that were carried out in collaboration with the Linux Foundation in 2014.

The report mentions and analyzes top NFV vendors such as 6WIND, Amdocs, Connectem, and Intel, among others.
