Software-Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization

The European Commission (EC) – DG Connect has contracted WIK-Consult, IDATE and TNO with a foresight study on Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV). The project website introduces you to the objectives and approach of the foresight study. In particular, we describe in detail the Delphi Study approach set out to reach a consensus among potentially varying expert opinions on SDN / NFV’s impact.

We aim to exchange intensively with international experts as well as the public. If you want to contribute or comment to our study, please get in contact with us, join our expert panel or express your opinion in the public consultation.
