Prior to the existence of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs), the operational tasks were carried out by dedicated hardware. VNFs transfer individual network functions from dedicated hardware devices into software that is executed on commodity hardware. These executions are implemented by network service providers and businesses, which include Domain Name System (DNS), firewalls, caching or Network Address Translation (NAT). VNFs could be interfaced together like elementary building blocks in a workflow, popularly known as service chaining. By the implementation of VNFs, application provisioning process and service chaining process are feasible and convenient.
However, increase in telecom service providers and surge in demand for cloud services are expected to be driving factors for the virtual network function market over the forecast period.
Moreover, increased market development in virtual network functions is expected to add fuel to the growth of virtual network function market. For instance, on November 2016, Tech Mahindra, an India-based leading consulting, business engineering, and integration company and an expert in digital transformation, networks, and operations for communications industry, unveiled their Virtual Network Function (VNF) Exchange, associated with numerous new age providers of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networks (SDN) products. Additionally, Verizon Communication partnered with Amazon web services to provide virtual network services.
