The new report indicates that service provider centric NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) and SDN (Software Defined Networking) investments are expected to reach nearly $21 Billion by 2020.
Global wireless CapEx is on the rise, as operators deploy LTE and HetNet (Heterogeneous Network) infrastructure, amid growing demands for high-speed mobile broadband connectivity. By eliminating reliance on expensive proprietary hardware platforms, NFV and SDN promise to reduce the CapEx burden on wireless carriers. In addition, both technologies can significantly slash OpEx due to a reduction in physical space, labor and power consumption.
Driven by the promise of TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) reduction, operators are aggressively jumping on the NFV and SDN bandwagon, targeting deployments across a multitude of areas. By the end of 2020, the new report estimates that NFV and SDN investments on operator networks will account for nearly $21 Billion. These investments will primarily focus on mobile core/EPC, policy/IMS services, RAN (Radio Access Networks), OSS/BSS, data center, backhaul and CPE/home environment.
The "NFV, SDN & Wireless Network Infrastructure Bible: 2015 – 2020" report package provides an in-depth assessment of NFV, SDN, network virtualization, 2G, 3G and 4G wireless network infrastructure, HetNet and mobile backhaul. Besides analyzing the key market drivers, challenges, commercial commitments and vendor strategies, the report package also presents forecasts for NFV, SDN, wireless network infrastructure, small cells, WiFi offload, DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems), C-RAN (Cloud RAN) and mobile backhaul equipment from 2015 to 2020 at a regional as well as a global scale.
The report package will be of value to current and future potential investors into the wireless and NFV/SDN/network virtualization sectors, as well as wireless carriers and infrastructure/device/software vendors who wish to broaden their knowledge of the ecosystem.
