Hewlett-Packard on Monday rolled out its master plan to help enable wireless carriers to launch services easily via Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).
The announcement, which came at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, is the latest NFV move from networking players looking to court wireless carriers. Alcatel-Lucent and Juniper outlined their plans and Cisco is scheduled to talk about its NFV efforts on Tuesday. The game for these networking players is to offer software, services and hardware to enable so-called virtual telecoms.
As for HP, the company is rolling out an OpenNFV effort that revolves around using virtualization and off-the-shelf hardware to launch new services. HP also launched an NFV Reference Architecture, OpenNFV Labs and an ecosystem of partners.
The OpenNFV Reference Architecture covers physical servers, storage, networking, virtualization and controllers for software defined networking and orchestration.
