Huawei launched a Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Open Lab in Xi´an, China. The NFV Open Lab is an open innovation center of ICT convergence dedicated to being open and collaborative, expanding joint service innovations with partners, and developing the open eco-system of NFV to aggregate values and help customers achieve business success.
From Huawei’s perspective, the main added values from NFV are that it will break the isolation of traditional telecommunications networks, shorten innovation cycles, reduce operating costs and create an open industry chain, which requires processes for open standardization and open source cloud technology.
