As technologies mature and networks transform, the spotlight is now falling on the commercialisation and operationalisation of NFV. Both can bring unique attributes and benefits but the question is, "Which one comes first?" Meanwhile, SD-WAN (whether taken in tandem with vCPE or not) also finds itself in the limelight and there is a rush to adopt it.
