Phased NFV Deployment

Phased NFV Deployment

Network functions virtualization, or NFV, means that dedicated network devices are replaced by software running on common off-the-shelf (COTS) servers. The original approach to NFV advocates the placement of virtualized network functions (VNFs) not only in data centers, but throughout the network, wherever they are most effective and least expensive. RAD offers a unique solution for Distributed NFV at the customer edge.

 

 
 
 
 
Phased NFV Deployment

Initial Deployment
Center-less solutions, minimum upfront investment and risk while benefiting from fast service introduction


Full-Scale Deployment
VNFs at the edge, network nodes and data center as justified, benefit from a shared IT resource pool

 
 
  • Service agility and operations cost management benefits from day one
  • Matches the pace at which costs are incurred with that of revenue generation
  • Does not require sophisticated management mechanisms for shared resources
  • Allows service providers to gain risk-free experience before embarking on massive NFV deployment
