Spanish multi-national operator Telefónica has unveiled a wide-reaching Network Functions Virtualization programme that it says will see it have more than 30 per cent of new infrastructure virtualized by 2016. The initiative, which will launch in June this year and has been named Unica (which is Spanish for ‘unique’), provides a framework for Telefónica’s “global, end-to-end virtualisation deployment,” the firm said.
Japanese vendor NEC this week made available what it claims is the world’s first virtualised Mobile Virtual Network Operator platform (vMVNO), running in a Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) environment.
