Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV)


Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) is a technology to implement network functions as software and run them on virtualized hardware instead of conventional dedicated hardware. Since the start of basic research on Network Functions Virtualisation in 2005, DOCOMO has been actively engaged in experimental trials with world-leading vendors and standardization activities. By gradually applying NFV technology over wider areas in our network, DOCOMO will continue to provide better services for customers.
