What is NFV?
Network functions virtualization (NFV) is a software-based solution that helps communications service providers (CSPs) move beyond traditional, proprietary hardware to achieve greater efficiency and agility—and reduce operations costs.
Red Hat’s® NFV solution is the result of our leading contributions to the OpenStack®, KVM, and DPDK projects. And it’s further strengthened by our vast ecosystem of certified partners.
Our NFV solution is open source and standards-based, giving you a stable, interoperable foundation to build on.
