NFV: From CI/CD to Hypervisor or Container Based Deployments
With NFV, Network Function Virtualization, the whole process starts with the design of the Virtualized Network Function (VNF). This is generally done by a supplier of the VNF, typically a vendor. This VNF is then sold to a service provider who will integrate this VNF in his environment to enhance or deploy a new service.
Towards Artificially Intelligent Networks
Antonio Manzalini, IEEE SDN Co-Chair, recently delivered a keynote speech at IEEE CloudNet. The presentation focused on the developments towards "Artificially Intelligent Networks" where SDN-NFV-Cloud-Edge-Fog Computing will converge with A.I. systems and methods.
