Network functions virtualization (NFV) is a core structural change in the way telecommunication infrastructure gets deployed. Network functions virtualization (NFV) describes standards for compute, storage, and networking resources which can be used for building virtualized network functions. It refers to the combination of hardware and software network features in a single virtual network. It also aims to address the problems by evolving standard IT virtualization technology to consolidate many network equipment types onto industry standard high volume servers, switches and storage.

The Network Function Virtualization Market is showing rapid growth in the near future. The study indicates that, the increased adoption of internet of things (IoT), growing popularity of digitization are the factors driving the network function virtualization market. Also, the increasing demand for data intensive applications and need of cloud based services is driving the network function virtualization market. The network function virtualization enables operators to reduce the needs to purchase customized hardware instead pay-as-you-grow model thus reducing the CapEx. The network function virtualization benefits by reducing OpEx, accelerating time to market by reducing the time to deploy. The study reveals that the major challenge for the network function virtualization market would be, network function virtualization environments are more dynamic than traditional ones, which might require scaling up with additional features to cope.
