Growth is based on current mobile data services and applications, such as mobile games, mobile videos, and location-based check-in services.
This trend is expected to keep growing due to the appearance of new mobile services and applications. The signiﬁcant growth in mobile trafﬁc, new network services, and applications are pushing carrier network operators to upgrade their systems in order to meet new requirements and increasing customer demands.
Cisco forecasts have shown that mobile data traffic will grow by 61 % from 2013 to 2018.
The current mobile core networks rely on proprietary hardware appliances, which make it difficult to upgrade them as they become obsolete. The tightly coupling between the control plane and data plane makes the current mobile network very slow and complicated when new network services or innovations need to be implemented. The manual configuration for each device also brings burden to the network operation and maintenance. Last, the current mobile network manages network resources inefficiently.
In the mobile network, with the migration from hardware to software appliances, NFV is expected to lower not only the equipment cost (CAPEX) but also the operational cost (OPEX).
