Network Functions Virtualization

Networking has evolved far and beyond and now everyone in IT Industry is talking about few hot topics in terms of Networking which is Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Network Virtualization (NV).

Recently I wrote a post over Software Defined Networking to understand SDN better in all aspects and to show how major Organizations is focusing on using SDN on their Networking Infrastructure.  It's now time to know about Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), NFV is the next step after SDN and it provides additional benefits by decoupling major networking functions from the underlying hardware and runs them separately in software and providing a robust Networking solution for Virtualized Environment.

Today I read few excellent posts from SDN Central and received more information on the topic and updated them below for your reference through this post.

Definition of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) - What’s NFV – Network Functions Virtualization?

Difference between NFV and SDN - NFV and SDN: What’s the Difference? 

( This above article also covers the benefits of having both solutions together)

One more article from on feature differences and benefits.
