The Future of Virtualization: NFV Rising
After hitting a lull last year, communication service providers' virtualization plans are on an upswing in 2017, according to the most recent Heavy Reading virtualization report.
According to the survey, which was based on the results from 40 communications service providers (CSPs) around the world, the overall virtualization planning process is progressing this year after a lack of planning in 2016 led to delays in deployments.
The twice-yearly survey, which is part of Light Reading's Virtuapedia initiative, tracks CSPs' virtualization progress across three areas; planning, spending and deployment. The CSPs that took part in the Heavy Reading survey "Future of Virtualization: The Force (Finally) Awakens" expressed more confidence in meeting timetables and deploying high-priority network functions going forward.
