Within the context of ecosystems such as HPE OpenNFV and Network Builders disparate companies are closely collaborating with one another to roll-out NFV services for their customers. For this to happen quickly and with maximum effectiveness the notion of "openness" is crucial to the deployment of the new technology. As Sanjay Bhatia explains, there are two aspects to openness, the first being interoperability within the ecosystem itself and the second being the enormous benefits that then accrue to the larger global NFV community. Furthermore, VNFs are the key to the monetisation of new services enabled by NFV and SDN.
