Network virtualization has become a common research topic that many researchers consider a basis for defining a new generation network architectures. In this paper, we attempt to clarify the concept of network virtualization with its brief history, to introduce the benefit of network virtualization for the future network, to posit our strong belief in that the future network should adopt a form of a meta-architecture that accommodates multiple competing multiple architectures, and to identify challenges to achieving this architecture.
