New Network Functions Virtualization Forum Gets Underway

The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) is launching a new Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Forum with a mission to develop use cases that identify emerging business opportunities, such as virtual network operator and service roaming.


The NFV Forum plans to build on solutions being developed by the ETSI NFV ISG specifications, OpenStack’s general purpose virtualization framework, the Linux Foundation’s Open Platform for NFV (core NFV functions), TM Forum Zoom’s program on management and operations, OpenDaylight’s open source SDN solution, and Open Networking Foundation’s OpenFlow.

“ATIS’ newest forum will provide the solutions that will take NFV from being an emerging technology to a true game changer in terms of enhancing the ability to integrate software across service providers in a uniform and automated way, and to scale application instances to meet the changing demand for services,” said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller.

The Forum’s inaugural event is a virtual meeting to be held September 25.
