This IDC technology assessment examines the role of the virtualization layer in NFV architecture, and the current and future implications of virtualization layer choices in the development of the NFV ecosystem.
"The choice of virtualization layer elements in NFV will become an increasingly strategic issue for CSPs as NFV deployments become more widespread and extensive. The proclaimed goal of many CSPs is to build a common, open-source platform for NFV; in most cases, virtualization solutions will have to follow the same principles." — Program Director Emir Halilovic, Networking and Infrastructure, IDC EMEA
