- Virtualization appliance
The operational complexity of managing multiple on-premises equipment can cause significant delays in time to deploy and market new services, reducing profitability. Enterprises need the flexibility to adapt their branch offices to their changing business needs in a secure and fast manner. They need the ability to turn up new services on demand from a single platform without the cost and complexity of deploying and managing additional devices, expertise which most branch personnel do not have. Network Function Virtualization (NFV) enables MSPs to deploy network services as virtualized functions that are decoupled from hardware and chained together, eliminating the need for multiple dedicated CPE. NFV centralizes and automates key operational processes such as service creation and provisioning, accelerating service delivery. NFV also opens the door to upsell additional services to create differentiation. Cloud-based service orchestration via NFV platforms reduces on-site provisioning, lowers costs and accelerates service delivery.
