Need for Increased Efficiency of Network Services Leads to Increased Institution of Virtual Network Environments

A market study, titled “Global SDN, NFV & Network Virtualization Ecosystem Industry 2016, Trends And Forecast Report,” has been featured on’s online repository of market intelligence.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/14/2017 -- The report provides a top-level analysis of reasons why software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), and network virtualization (NV) structures are gaining prominence in computing and information technology arenas. The report delves into trends and growth prospects of virtual network ecosystems in North America, Asia, and Europe in 2016. The U.S., Japan, Germany, China, and Japan are the major countries that are analyzed in this report for SDN, NV, and NFV ecosystems in 2016.

The report begins with an overview of definitions, terms and terminologies, and classifications that are used in the context of SDN, NV, and NFV ecosystems. This is followed by industry statutes and legislations that business entities need to abide by. A glance at the recent industry news is also presented at the end of this section.

In computing and information technology, SDN, NFV, and NV are complementary to each other. Each of them offers a new approach for designing, deploying, and managing networks and related services. SDN is one of the approaches to manage networks, wherein the control plane and forwarding plane are separated from each other. While SDN is complementary to NFV for network management purposes, they are based on different methods.

In virtual network ecosystems, NFV focuses on improving the efficiency of network services themselves. These include decoupling of network functions such as caching, domain name system (DNS), etc. from proprietary hardware, in order to run in software with the intent of accelerating service innovation and provisioning, especially in service provider environments. In virtual network function environments, the role of NV is to ensure integration of networks and support the demand for virtualized architectures. This is particularly true for multi-tenancy requirements.

The executive summary section of the report discusses at length development trends that have been observed in virtual network environments in the past. Based on these parameters, the report presents estimates of network capacity, demand analysis, and revenue analysis for SDN, NV, and NFV ecosystems in 2016. These indices have been systematically portrayed through graphical representations for the entire forecast period from 2011 to 2016.
