The Comms SP Journey to Commercial Software: License Management of Virtual Network Functions

This IDC Market Note analyzes the impact of the ETSI report on license management for NFV on the marketplace of communications service providers (SPs), suppliers to communications SPs, and customers of communications SPs. In recent months, the team has begun sharing the findings with the industry to solicit input regarding VNF utilization, deploying the VNF, and measuring the VNF."Communications SP buyers have long emphasized that the value of a network function lies in what it can do for their customers rather the value of engineering or raw materials making this ETSI initiative significant for the communications SP community," said Elisabeth Rainge, research vice president, Communications Service Provider Operations.
