The SDN, NFV & Network Virtualization Bible: 2015 - 2020 - Japan Special Edition
Published: November 19, 2014 Content info: 391 Pages
Description

While the benefits of SDN (Software Defined Networking) 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. SDN and network virtualization solutions have been widely deployed in data center and enterprise environments, and many service provider deployments are already underway.

NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) is service provider led initiative aimed at virtualizing network components in a service provider network. While NFV is still a developing technology, many vendors have already developed commercial-grade solutions that align well with the NFV initiative. Initial customer trials are also underway, with Japan leading these early deployments.

Driven by the thriving ecosystem, SNS Research estimates that the SDN, NFV and network virtualization market will account for nearly $10 Billion in 2015 alone. Despite barriers relating to standardization and co-existence with legacy networks, SNS Research estimates further growth at a CAGR of 37% over the next 5 years. By the end of 2020, Japan alone will account for nearly $4 Billion in SDN and NFV investments.

This report presents an in-depth assessment of the global SDN, NFV and network virtualization market. In addition to covering underlying technology, key market drivers, challenges, future roadmap, value chain analysis, use cases, deployment case studies, company profiles, product strategies and strategic recommendations, the report also presents comprehensive forecasts for the market from 2015 till 2020. The forecasts are individually segmented for 10 individual submarkets, 2 user base categories, 7 use case categories, 6 geographical regions and 34 countries (including Japan).

The report comes with an associated Excel datasheet covering quantitative data from all figures presented within the report.

This special edition of the report also features an additional Excel datasheet detailing additional forecasts for SDN and NFV investments in Japan.
