“The rapid ascension of virtualization in connection to the telecom space has been exciting to watch as vendors, standards bodies and trade organizations have attempted to gain a handle on developing platforms,” Meyer explained. “As many noted, NFV is being pushed by telecom operators, which has sort of placed the vendor community on the back leg as it attempts to provide solutions that operators are comfortable deploying. This has led to a long list of significant challenges still facing the NFV ecosystem, which could prove to be a tall hurdle to overcome.”
