White Paper: Operators Accelerate NFV Adoption for Faster Agility and Openness

Huawei offers systems integration solutions to help operators quickly commercialize NFV

Tier 1 operators accelerate adoption of NFV to increase agility and openness while reducing operating costs

The growing need for operators to increase service agility, while reducing the cost of service, is causing them to step up the pace of NFV adoption. Tier 1 operators in particular are converting early proof-of-concept (PoC) use cases such as vEPC, vIMS and vCPE to commercial pre-deployments, or full deployments. This is leading NFV advocates to strengthen broader deployment plans by turning to advanced partnerships with suppliers.

About one-fifth of operators studied view capacity upgrades as a top trigger for NFV adoption. Operators see NFV as a way to relieve legacy networks’ struggles to accommodate bandwidth demands, due to higher rates of data and video traffic, and decrease proprietary hardware required for network services.

Operators also consider faster service provisioning a main adoption trigger. NFV can reduce service rollout times from months to days, enabling adopters to offer services ahead of non-adopters.
