CNF (Cloud-Native Network Function) is a software implementation of a network function, traditionally performed on a physical device (e.g. IPv4/v6 router, L2 switch, VPN gateway, firewall), but built and deployed in a cloud-native way:
- • Built & packaged into Docker container as a networking microservice
- • Ready to be deployed & orchestrated by Kubernetes in private, public or hybrid cloud infrastructures
- • Manageable via cloud-native APIs
- • Ready to be chained with other CNFs to form more complex networking functions
