Emerging technology is driving new business models for networks in ways that we couldn’t have anticipated in years past.  Virtual networks, firewalls, virtual routers, virtual load balances and switches are all now being deployed as software through network functions virtualization (NFV). As important as the technology is, the business models associated with the technology are allowing customers to start adapting to on-demand technology. This business model is also allowing customers to move into contracts based on consumption and not duration.
