The leading technology company Cisco launched a new network functions virtualization (NFV) solution at the Mobile World Congress 2016, Barcelona that can reduce the total ownership cost of networking services by 40%.
Cisco’s new NFV Infrastructure Solution (NFVI) integrates virtual and physical technology, making it capable of performing many functions involved in networking. To say, it can automate network operations, reduce network outages, improve OpenStack and Linux security, shorten service deployments, and simplify customer support.
“This solution is another step in delivering on our strategy for an open, modular and expandable network architecture. We are committed to helping our service provider customers embrace the network transformation toward virtualization with the right foundation to successfully deploy virtualized network functions,” said Kelly Ahuja, Senior Vice President, Cisco service provider business.
The new NFVI is designed to suit Cisco’s VPC solution, which provides network functions as virtualized services for all mobile packet core services across 4G, 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi, and small cell networks.
