Addressing the key security challenges In NFV infrastructure
Mar 29, 2016Comms Risk
The telecom world is quickly moving towards networks built on SDN and NFV infrastructure. These two technologies are creating new business opportunities for telcos to quickly develop and deploy new and useful cloud services.
Another key attraction of NFV and SDN is its ability to abstract the operation and monitoring of services across a broad range of devices, PCs, and servers. At the same time, the virtual machines running these technologies can live everywhere from servers in a data center to CPE devices at the customer’s site.
And while NFV and SDN deployments have just started and will take years to evolve, many of the telco giants are committed to migrating many of their dedicated network equipment to full software control.
