The SDN, NFV & Network Virtualization Bible: 2015 – 2020 – Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts


This is the most comprehensive report on the SDN/NFV market till date, covering over 200 company profiles, and 32 countries.

SNS Research's latest report indicates that spending on service provider SDN (Software Defined Networking) and NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) orchestration platforms is expected to reach nearly $1.7 Billion by 2020.

In an SDN and NFV context, orchestration software provides management and coordination of VNFs (Virtual Network Functions), infrastructure resource pools and service pool resources.The variable nature of costs and resources in a service provider environment makes orchestration a significantly complex task in service provider networks in comparison to traditional data center environments. Despite this complexity and other challenges such as vendor interoperability, the market is poised for considerable growth in the coming years.

Expected to account for merely $170 Million in 2015, spending on SDN/NFV orchestration platforms is expected to grow at a CAGR of nearly 60% between 2015 and 2020. By the end of 2020, orchestration platforms will account for $1.7 Billion in revenue, representing more than 8% of all service provider SDN/NFV spending.
