For Network Vendors
Minimise development costs and time-to-market
By exploiting the NFV feature, network vendors developing specialised networking equipment for specific use, have the potential to virtualise their platform, gaining the unique opportunity to drastically widen their target customer groups and thus strengthen their position in the global market. Via the Function Store, virtual appliances can be advertised and instantly exposed to the global marketplace, lowering time-to-market down to minimum. “Beta” versions of the appliances are now possible for even faster introduction, with continuous updates and fixes promising long-term support.
By working on virtualized platforms, manufacturers have the freedom to decouple their solutions from the underlying hardware and stop worrying about hardware compatibilities/ restrictions and avoid the delay and costs associated with hardware prototyping. The focus of development is now shifted to the functionality and optimization of the networking software itself, rather than the hardware which supports it.
