NFV-enabled IoT Networks: Opportunities and Threats for Operators
Published: July 25, 2018 Content info: 14 Pages

"Operators need to evaluate the implications of the emergence of new entrants with LPWA networks based on NFV/SDN and how that will impact their own ambitions in IoT."

This report evaluates the rise of new entrants that deploy network functions virtualisation (NFV)-based network management solutions for IoT and the implications for operators with ambitions in the IoT market.

This report provides:

  • an assessment of the impact of NFV/software-defined networking (SDN) on the emerging LPWA network market and the implications for mobile network operators with ambitions in IoT
  • an overview of the options available to operators to either partner with the new entrants to accelerate their virtualisation capabilities and their IoT business, or accelerate their virtualisation strategy for IoT
  • a description of LPWA technologies and how they are being virtualised (a glossary slide defines the different types of LPWA networks and their target use cases)
  • a summary of key operators' LPWA network plans and the drivers for applying NFV/SDN.

This is a unique snapshot of the power of virtualisation to shape a market with potentially disruptive consequences for established players that have not yet mastered it.
