SDN and NFV
Overture is proud to be a founding member of CloudNFV. This initiative has the potential of moving frameworks that include network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networks (SDN) quickly into every day applications for service providers. It also brings to the forefront questions about what these cloud technologies do and how they work together.
- What is network functions virtualization?
- What are software-defined networks?
- How are these two technologies alike?
- How do they differ?
- What’s the benefit of using them together?
Overture’s Chief Technologist Prayson Pate has written extensively on this topic. The following resources offer information from Prayson as well as other key sources that discuss each technology, their differences and their compatibilities.
