A Study On Optimizing VNF Software Cost


Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is one of the promising and futuristic technologies in the area of network architecture. It was launched as a leading network technology by networking and telco companies promising to lower Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) and Operational Expenditure (OPEX) with greater flexibility to scale up and lower the resources. VNF software (Virtual Network Function) functionalities, metrics, rights, etc. are not yet thoroughly explore which in turn services provisioning and licensing complexes, error, and lethargic. We call this problem VNF-SC (Virtualize Network Function Software Cost) or VNF-LC (Licensing Cost). In this study, we have tried to explore the existing problems and complications in VNF licensing/cost and recommend the novel idea using use-cases which help to optimize the VNF software cost. This study also discusses the challenges that need to be addressed in the upcoming days. In SAM (Software Asset Management) universe usually, software cost and software license costs are used interchangeably so in our article we also follow the same trends.
