NFV is becoming a reality in the world of networks. There are many questions that abound from the use of containers and OpenStack. The real challenge is how do you simplify the deployment of the NFV infrastructure and the VNFs. The goal is to make things quick and easy. Service providers are embracing virtualized network functions to improve network agility and reduce hardware budgets.
