how to create VNF like vRouter on openstack

I have been hearing NFV and how it provisions Network functions in cloud environment.

As a new-bee, I want to understand some basic questions.

Is it possible to create a virtual router with out actually having a router in place using Openstack?

If so, what needs to be done in high level perspective for a simple use case such as "Providing a virtual router functionality on Openstack installed basic environment say on a laptop."

All the info that I have read till now on NFV is purely theoretical and I could not see any demonstrations of simple use cases.

Request you to please throw some light on the queries provide pointers for further study on how to achieve NFV.

Thank you
