While Network virtualization and SDN (Software Defined Networking) profit are well known in the enterprise IT and data center world, both technologies also bring a host of advantages to the telecommunications service provider community. Not only can these technologies help address the deeper capacity requisition of mobile traffic, but they can also, demote the CapEx and OpEx burden faced by service providers to handle this demand by reducing reliance on expensive proprietary hardware platforms. The NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) emergence due to the recognition of these profits has led to the concept that pursues to virtualized and effectively consolidate many service provider network elements onto multi-tenant industry-standard servers, switches, and storage.

Service providers - mobile and fixed-line both - are formerly making significant investments in NFV and SDN across many cases of use including but not limited to uCPE/vCPE, SD-WAN, vEPC, vIMS, Cloud RAN and vCDN SNS Research believes that between 2017 and 2020, service provider NFV and SDN investment will increase about 45% CAGR, eventually accounting for nearly $22 Billion in revenue by the end of 2020.

The report gives answers to the following key questions: - How big are the NFV, SDN and network virtualization opportunity? - What challenges, trends, and barriers are influencing its growth? - How is the ecosystem developing by segment and region? - What will the size of the market in 2020 and at what rate will it grow? - Which areas, submarkets and countries will see the highest percentage of growth? - What are the status of NFV and SDN deployments across service provider, data center and enterprise networks? - How big is the chance for service provider and cloud-managed SD-WAN services? - How are service provider-led ambitions driving SDN and NFV investments? - How does regulation affect the adoption of software-centric networks? - What level of CapEx savings can NFV and SDN facilitate for service providers? - Do NFV and SDN pose a threat to traditional network infrastructure vendors? - Who are the major market players and what are their strategies? - What plan should enabling network configuration vendors, technology providers, NFV /SDN specialists, service providers, and other ecosystem players adopt to remain competitive?

Key Findings The report has the following key findings:

- Between 2017 and 2020 SNS Research assumes that service provider of NFV and SDN investments will increase at a CAGR of about 45%, eventually accounting for approximately $22 Billion in revenue by the end of 2020. - Command by internet whopper, large enterprises and data center operators, the adoption of software-centric networking are also continuing to grow in the enterprise and data center segment. SNS Research evaluates that SDN and network virtualization investments in this segment accounted for $12 Billion in 2017 alone. - Newmarket players are beginning to emerge as service providers appreciate their transition to software-centric networks. For example, with its untimely victory in NFV-compliant mobile core and IMS stage, industries like Affirmed Networks and Mavenir Systems have emerged as direct competitors to established wireless network infrastructure giants. - With the emergence of initiatives such as the Linux Foundation's ONAP (Open Network Automation Platform), ETSI's OSM (Open-Source MANO) and SK Telecom's T-MANO,

solutions are beginning to be commercialized that can perform integrated management and proportion of VNFs from multiple vendors.
