|Operator Strategies for Building 5G NFVI|
|Published: September 11, 2019||Content info: 6 Slides||
"Industry failure to create virtual network functions (VNFs) that have no dependencies on specific hardware configurations has delayed the NFV project."
The slow progress towards eliminating network functions virtualisation (NFV) hardware and software interdependencies, and the lack of abstraction capabilities for managing diverse NFV infrastructure (NFVI) environments, have together led to siloed deployments of virtual network functions that limit the benefits of NFV. 5G demands a common, horizontal network cloud and three strategies are emerging for building it: NFVI standardisation (for example, the Common NFVI Telco Taskforce (CNTT) activities), on-premises versions of public cloud providers' cloud stacks, and self-build heterogenous NFVI with abstraction.
