SDN, NFV & Network Virtualization to Enable Service Providers Save Up to $32 Billion in Annual CapEx Investments, Reveals New Report

Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “The SDN, NFV & Network Virtualization Bible: 2014 - 2020" research report to their offering.


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/21/2013 -- Driven by the thriving ecosystem Software Defined Networking (SDN), Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and network virtualization market is expected to account for nearly $4 Billion in revenue 2014, reveals The SDN, NFV & Network Virtualization Bible: 2014 - 2020 report. A further growth at a CAGR of nearly 60% over the next 6 years is expected despite barriers relating to standardization and co-existence with legacy networks. This report also estimates that by 2020, SDN and NFV can enable service providers (both wireline and wireless) to save up to $32 Billion in annual CapEx investments.

While the benefits of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and network virtualization are well known in the enterprise IT and data center world, both technologies also bring a hosts of benefits to the telecommunications service provider/carrier community. Not only can SDN and network virtualization help address the explosive capacity demand of mobile traffic, but they can also reduce the CapEx and OpEx burden faced by service providers to handle this demand by diminishing reliance on expensive proprietary hardware platforms.

Although network virtualization in the enterprise IT and data center domain has received significant attention in the past years, service provider network virtualization is still at a nascent stage. SDN and NFV empower a multitude of network functions to be implemented cost effectively in software, ranging from standard mobile IP Multimedia System (IMS) services to features such as Deep Packet Inspection (DPI).

By 2017 we expect to see significant price and gross margin erosion for traditional hardware-based network switching equipment driven by alternative software based solutions.
