Programmability and virtualization have both become the trends of next generation networks. ForCES (Forwarding and Control Element Seperation) is a new programmable framework for network element. We introduce virtualization into ForCES, propose a method of ForCES virtualization, design its framework, implement a prototype system named vForTER, and test its performance in different scenarios. Test results show that we can flexibly build isolated virtual routers in one physical ForCES network
