NFV, SDN & Wireless Network Infrastructure Market 2017: Global Projection,Solutions,Services Forecast to 2030

NFV, SDN & Wireless Network Infrastructure Market
WiseGuyReports.Com Publish a New Market Research Report On -“NFV, SDN & Wireless Network Infrastructure Market 2017: Global Projection,Solutions,Services Forecast to 2030”.


Service providers continue to face increasing CapEx and OpEx burdens, amid growing requirements for high-speed mobile broadband services. By eliminating reliance on expensive proprietary hardware platforms, NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) and SDN (Software Defined Networking) promise to reduce service provider CapEx. 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, mobile operators are aggressively jumping on the NFV and SDN bandwagon, targeting deployments across a multitude of areas. By the end of 2020, SNS Research estimates that NFV and SDN investments on service provider networks will account for over $18 Billion. These investments will initially focus on EPC/mobile core, IMS, policy control, CPE (Customer Premises Equipment), CDN (Content Delivery Network) and transport networks.  

Spanning over 1,600 pages, the “NFV, SDN & Wireless Network Infrastructure Market: 2016 – 2030 – Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies and Forecasts” report package encompasses three comprehensive reports covering covering NFV, SDN, conventional 2G, 3G, 4G & 5G wireless network infrastructure and HetNet (Heterogeneous Network) infrastructure:
