Mobile World Congress 2014: 8 NFV Moves That Stole The Show


Hewlett-Packard

Hewlett-Packard contributed to the NFV frenzy with the launch of OpenNFV, an open standards-based reference architecture that leverages HP's Virtual Services Router and SDN Controller.

OpenNFV, HP said, arms carriers with a complete NFV architectural play across servers, storage and networking, and can slash service provider costs by as much as 50 percent by moving them to industry-standard hardware.

HP also introduced OpenNFV Labs and an OpenNFV Partner Program to fuel the development of new NFV-based applications. Topping it all off, HP even unveiled a new business unit dedicated to NFV, led by HP Networking head Bethany Mayer.
