For Software Developers
Break into the networking market
The concept of NFV for network appliance virtualization has the potential to open the networking market to pure software entrants. This opening is expected to stimulate sustainable growth and reinforce the competitiveness of the European players by the creation of new business opportunities. T-NOVA further supports this potential not only via the establishment of a common architecture and framework for network services, but also via its Function Store and Marketplace aspects. Up to now, OS- specific “Application Stores” –such as Apple AppStore and Google Play Store, currently hosting more 1.5 million applications in total, have had a tremendous commercial impact by opening up the application market to thousands of developers, most of them individual programmers or start-up SMEs. A similar impact, though naturally smaller in scale, is expected to be produced by the T-NOVA “Function Store”. Within T-NOVA, the function development, exchange and trading processes take place in a multi-actor ecosystem, allowing software Function Developers to export their products into the global networking marketplace.
