Watch Susan James, Ericsson’s Head of Product Line, NFV Infrastructure, explain the benefits of NFV in a new video, including agreements earlier this year with Telstra and Swisscom.

At the 2016 Mobile World Congress, Ericsson signed agreements with Telstra and Swisscom to provide those partners with Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and related services. Ericsson will also be providing virtualization services to Telefonica, specifically focused on infrastructure.

The partnerships with Swisscom and Telstra are ramping up to launch this year.

The primary benefit to NFV is an increase to agility, speed, and efficiency. NFV allows telco operators to stop investing in native networking technology (or to keep investing, but to also think beyond native solutions).

As telco operators around the world look to virtualization, the question is not whether to adopt NFV, but how and where to do so.
