To achieve carrier-grade NFV required by telecom service providers, the network infrastructure requires high-availability, high-redundancy and NEBS-compliant hardware platforms as the base during the deployment process in order to host VNFs. In the mean time, hardware resources like CPU, DRAM, NIC modules and storage devices are accessible and controllable by network applications to drive the efficiency of VNFs. In other words, the telecom version of NFV is the transformation of network infrastructure that integrates virtualized network with carrier-grade hardware.
