Overture and CloudNFV joined by Telefonica and Sprint in first ETSI NFV Proof of Concept
You may have read this morning that CloudNFV – the group of vendors Overture joined forces with on NFV – received notification that our proof of concept submission to ETSI was accepted. There are a couple of public articles that have been published today. We expect to see more later today.
ETSI is the defining body for network functions virtualization (NFV). Our group was the first to respond to ETSI’s call for “proof of concepts” and ours was the first whose proposal to be accepted. The original founders of CloudNFV were joined by service provider sponsors Telefonica and Sprint along with Metaswitch and their Clearwater IMS software suite.
I will be writing more on the PoC details over the next couple of days. In the coming months the group will work through demonstrations, documenting progress and reporting back into the ETSI standards group.
More details can be found in the proof of concept proposal we submitted. It's posted on the ETSI public Wiki here.
