Software defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) have exploded over the last 18 months. This whitepaper explores SDN and NFV with an emphasis on its benefits, use cases, and challenges that must be overcome to move forward. It describes how Intel®, Wind River®, and HP have partnered to address several of the challenges posed by SDN and NFV using open standards and low-cost commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware.
- Benefits of SDN and NFV for the WAN
- Challenges to overcome for further adoption of SDN and NFV
- A high-performance NFV solution based on standard open-source software and COTS hardware
