Global Network Function Virtualization Market – Overview

Network function virtualization is a method to deploy and manage the range of network components such as routers, firewall, and others by replacing the hardware network elements with software that runs on virtualized network infrastructure. The network function virtualization promotes the integration of various network components in software which support various industry standard server. Additionally, it can be integrated in network deprived areas for the installation of physical infrastructure.

Rapid technological advancements and increased network complexity are some of the factors which are influencing the growth of Network Function Virtualization Market. In the recent years, there is an exponential rise in the data traffic that has led to network congestion. Also, the rising demand of OTT services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime along with declining data tariffs rates are some of the factors that are responsible for growth of data traffic. Considering this, the communication service providers are unable to meet the increasing consumer expectations for personalized services due to lack of telecom infrastructure. In this regard, the integration of network function virtualization in the telecommunication network helps the communication service providers to reduce the operational cost (OPEX) and capital expenditure (CAPEX) by reducing management complexities.
