Title: NRG Meeting: Network Functions Virtualization (Nabeel Akhtar)
Network Functions Virtualization
Presenter: Nabeel Akhtar

Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) has recently attracted much  
attention worldwide [1]. Academia and industry have come to regard it as a  
promising candidate for the Future Networks, along with Software Defined  
Networking. According to NFV concept, network functions such as network  
address translation, firewall, and load balancing, which were previously  
actualized through dedicated physical devices, will be completely or  
partially implemented in software, that can run on a range of industry  
standard server hardware, and that can be moved to, or instantiated in,  
various locations in the network as required, without the need for  
installation of new equipments.

NFV Industrial Standard Group (NFV ISG), originally proposed by European  
Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI) in October 2012, has grown  
over 150 companies, including 28 service providers.

In this talk, I will present NFV and how it can be applied to not only  
current Internet, but also to the Future Internet. I will talk about few  
service models and high-level use cases, which represent important service  
models and initial fields of application for NFV. I will also talk about  
how to support NFV using our new network architecture - RINA.
