Starting from an estimated $10.3bn in 2020, the market for global carrier SDN hardware, software, and services is projected to hit $27.6bn in 2025. Operators understand that network operations must be automated at the lowest levels of the network. Carrier SDN is pivotal to any network automation strategy and is the main high-level driver of this forecast.
Operators must accelerate telco transformation, and the next step is to integrate automation and cloud engineering. They must handle a 5G-enabled future with no single business case, which will require reliable networks and agile mindsets.
To achieve cloud-based operations for operators’ 5G strategy, investment in software-defined networking (SDN) and NFV is needed. The market for global NFV software and services is projected to hit $45.5bn in 2025.
Omdia's NFV tracker represents the sum total of multiple regional and software product forecasts. Starting from an estimated $26.7bn in 2020, the market for global NFV software and services is projected to hit $45.5bn in 2025.
Half-year forecast data update. Provides in-depth coverage of the global uCPE hardware market. Forecast drivers include SD-WAN adoption & CSP edge computing strategies. This update considers the effect of global supply chain disruption.
Among respondents (n=65), 92% have deployed or plan to deploy NFV soon. Operators are integrating NFV (and other carrier network software) to no longer “compete” with hyperscalers but instead partner with them to deliver new services in 5G.
