Seperately, a single virtual network functions could be interfaced or combined collectively as building blocks to provide a large scale network communication services.          

However, VNFs faciliates many advantages for the service providers in many ways. For instance, VNFs helps to optimise the network scalability and agility, also facilitates to use of network resources efficiently. VNFs also helps to reduce the power consumption and reduces the hardware spaces as the VNFs replaces hardware components which eventually lower the opertational and capital expenditure. In the light of these factors, VNFs is expected to gain the huge popularity among the telecom service providers over the forecast period.
