Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are steadily disrupting the more traditional networks due to their myriad of advantages. SDN abstracts the infrastructure and provides interconnections, whereas NFV virtualizes the control plane and network functions. Both technologies complement each other and converge in many ways, yielding yet another terminology: SDNFV.

Greater agility, improved flexibility, increased security and ease of configuration are some of the benefits that SDNFV offers. However, with increasing technology options, the probability for confusion and mixed messages goes up. There exist only a select few companies that can deliver SDNFV solutions and services that are rich in quality and fulfill the exact needs of the customers. netnology, a Silicon Valley-based firm is an exception, providing SDNFV solutions and services that cater to particular needs of the customers.”Our services are aligned with customer business outcomes to help optimize cost, reduce complexity and increase efficiency by leveraging cross-architecture multi-vendor and open-source SDNFV solutions,” asserts Salman Asadullah, Principal at netnology and former Cisco Distinguished Engineer.
