Region : Global | Report ID: FBI100298 | Status : Ongoing



According to a report published by AT&T Intellectual Property I, L.P., in 2019, the company has invested around US$ 23 Bn for the development and deployment of 5G technology globally. Rising investment for the expansion of 5G infrastructure is expected to drive the growth of the virtual router market in the forecast period. A virtual router is a software-based routing structure that allows the host device to operate as a typical hardware router over a local area network.

The virtual router shares an internet connection with the Wi-Fi device by allowing network paths to segmented for multiple devices. The system helps to segregate traffic and increases network security by eliminating the need for encryption and authentication. Virtual routers provide functions such as traffic routing, network functions virtualization (NFV), overlapping of IP addresses, and enable the solution to function as a general hardware-based network appliance. A virtual route deployed in various applications such as virtual broadband services, virtual route reflection, and virtual cloud gateways. A recent development in virtual routers includes the implementation of Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) and security software in a virtual router to separate traffic and increased network security by removing the requirement for encryption and verification.
