There is now a proliferation of vendors in the NFV ecosystem and it is continuing to grow as new players enter the market deploying ‘cloud native’ applications to supplement and compete with the more traditional hardware vendors who have virtualized their tried and tested software. On the one hand this is a good thing as it adds to choice and healthy competition, says Vanessa. On the other hand it’s becoming difficult for service providers to select and onboard their VNFs.
