NFV FORUM – VIRTUAL BROADBAND

 
 

 

In these early exciting days of NFV technology – Proofs of Concept, RFx, first Trials – it is easy to overlook the bigger prize. Many now believe the way we are currently building networks is not just inefficient and inflexible, it is fundamentally broken and can't scale beyond the medium term. At root, we are building using a very outdated approach. NFV offers a long-term strategy for solving this problem.

Virtual Broadband Forum will look at the new potential created by NFV – fast service prototype & creation, super-flexible infrastructure, ultra-scalable capacity – leveraging NFV to virtualise CPE, CGNAT, BRAS, DPI and other Broadband infrastructure functions. Gaining not just benefits of cost-efficiency, but revenue growth and expanding markets as new business models are invented.
