    Software-Centric Networks - A migration path to NFV

    Prepared by Gabriel Brown - Sr. Analyst, Heavy Reading - on behalf of Radisys


    Radisys, Intel and Heavy Reading joined together this past Fall and presented a multi-city roadshow called: Deployment Strategies for SDN/NFV. Radisys collaborated with Gabriel Brown, Sr. Analyst, Heavy Reading to produce this White Paper: Software-Centric Networks: A migration path to NFV.


    The Paper outlines practical steps that allow operators to start unlocking the benefits of COTS hardware and virtualized applications as they work towards implementing a full NFV-capable cloud platform. Highlights include:

    - Where to start with NFV – Application driven NFV vs Platform driven NFV
    - Cloud NFV
    - Migration Plat the Cloud NFV
    - Virtualization not “Cloudification”
    - Applications written for the Cloud
    - “Cloudification” & NFV
    - NFV Orchestration & Management
    - Workload Mobility & SDN
    - Stages of NFV & SDN over time
