Hi Haibin,

Yes I agree with you! 
In particular, the dynamic lifecycle management of the virtual network functions (e.g., deploy, provision, operation and runtime management, disposal)  is very different from the (almost) static configuration of conventional network appliances. 

Best regards,
Georgios

Onderwerp: [NFVCON] virtualization of network functions makes the management    different

Hi guys,

I'm thinking the virtualization of network functions makes the management different from the conventional network appliances, for example, when compared with hard appliances, virtual network functions are easy to install/update/delete, or migrate from one place to another (for something like virtual residential gateway). And virtual network functions can also be open to the network function consumers. What are other differences in your opinion?

Best Regards!
-Haibin
