What do you need to consider when deploying NFV?

Mobile World Congress 2.JPGAs with any new technology introduction, the decision to deploy Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) by Communications Service Providers (CSPs) will be guided by a realistic business case and not just marketing promises. Fortunately, cost savings can be estimated. And these savings open a new world of opportunity for providers to drive innovation.


What do you need to consider when deploying NFV?

Several things, including accrued cost savings, business models, and architectural options. Cost must be considered over a full five year lifecycle that would include both capital expense (CapEx) as well as operating expense (OpEx). CapEx (hardware and software licenses) reductions may become apparent immediately, while OpEx (installation, support, and power) will improve over time.


Read more about NFV: The Reality of Cost Reduction at the HP Enterprise Services blog and if you're attending Mobile World Congress this week, visit HP at the Fira Gran Via, Hall 3, booth 3A20 to hear more about NFV.
