Every network must route traffic – whether it’s voice, video, data or more. That’s a given. Because of this, routers became a staple of legacy infrastructures, with every location in the network using one and heavily depending on its capabilities to keep the business functional. BUT routing is not a function that can only be performed by routers. In fact, with the advent of software-defined networks, it is no longer necessary and can be better leveraged as a virtual network function to take full advantages of the benefits of a software base and of the cloud.
