Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is an evolved system engineering approach for building complex applications, particularly in the telecommunications and service provider industries, by making effective use of virtualized resources. In the present scenarios, new applications are difficult to conceptualize. Thus, there is a greater focus on the consolidation of resources to optimize the cost. This is where NFC comes into play. NFV helps in re-engineering. Re-engineering mostly involves decoupling the logical network functions from the hardware platform and moving the software-only implementation of these functions to general-purpose high-performance servers using some virtualization framework. These software-only building blocks may be connected or chained together to create services.
HSC has years of experience in working in NFV, both for product development as well as product testing, integration, and field deployment. We have actively worked with clients to migrate existing network functions to an NFV architecture and identify the optimal deployment configuration and infrastructure management approach.
The network virtualization services offered by HSC in the NFV area are:
