Evaluating Container Based VNF Deployment For Cloud Native NFV

This article focuses on how telecom application are different than cloud native IT application, microservices approach for VNF development to achieve cloud native NFV, compares virtual machine and container based VNF deployment, benefits and concerns of using containers for VNF deployment in NFV instrastructure.

Why Cloud-Native VNFs are Really Important for NFV?

In last article, we discussed about how DevOps approach can be converged in NFV and had brief mention about application of DevOps for VNFs into NFV architecture. In this article, let’s talk about need for cloud-native Virtual Network Functions (VNFs). VNFs are software implementation of network function equipment packaged in virtual machine, on top of […]

Convergence of NFV & DevOps for Accelerating Innovation

With growing number of ‘connected’ devices, 5G technology promises to deliver accelerated connectivity to consumers along with lucrative services. But it has to compliment with automated internal operations which will speed up introduction of new lucrative services delivered through agile network. NFV & DevOps are the mainstream technology for many IT & telecom based companies. […]
