Unified Communications Key Driver for NFV with most Deployment Expected in 2014

According to a Network Function Virtualization (NFV) survey conducted by Dialogic, among 12 top service providers in the U.S, unified communications is the likely starting place for NFV deployments followed by 4G and 3G. More than 80 percent of respondents foresee a diminishing role for the traditional Central Office, 70 percent of respondents believing they could be more operationally efficient with NFV and 67 percent indicating it is a better way to invest capital.The survey repondents also highlighed that security and scalability are leading challenges for those implementing a virtualization strategy, so the take away here is for companies to look for solutions and partners who can be trusted to address those concerns. 

“It all comes down to the fact that virtualization of Network Functions is just a matter of when, not if,” according to Thomas Schroer, director of service provider marketing for Dialogic. “Because the timing is right now for virtualizing UC and VoIP applications and 70 percent of survey respondents expect to see gains in operational efficiency right away.”
