An Internet of Things (IoT) system is manifest in a complex array of devices, gateways, and network infrastructure (hardware, software, platforms, databases, etc.), to provide applications, services, data and analytics. IoT system capacity, flexibility, and extensibility will be greatly enhanced through virtualization.
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is a telecom led initiative that aims to utilize standard IT virtualization technology to consolidate many telecom network equipment types onto industry standard high volume servers, switches and storage.
NFV plays the role of connecting and managing heterogeneous IoT elements in a more scalable, flexible, and secure manner. This need is especially the case for enterprise IoT as a typical large enterprise IoT architecture will consist of potentially hundreds of data centers, thousands of IoT gateways, and millions of IoT devices.
