The addition of new network functions or applications have historically been constrained by the business’s hardware-based appliances. This has put a strain on the cost and speed of deployment of new networking services to support changing business requirements. In today’s fast-paced businesses, scaling up and scaling down to address changing demands has led to the introduction of NFV, so services can be delivered via software on any industry-standard server hardware.

With NFV, services such as Firewall, deep packet inspection and intrusion prevention (also known as Deep Inspection Defense; DID) become virtual network functions (VNF). These functions can load balanced to get optimal performance versus investment.

Also for 5G, NFVs like User Plane Function (UPF) are considered.
