  4. > The Cloud computing, NFV and SDN: worldwide market sizing and forecast 2014–2018

"The cloud computing, network function virtualisation (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) markets are all driven by service providers' need for service agility, and to reduce costs (capex and opex) and improve operational flexibility. This report provides forecasts for vendor revenue in the cloud computing, NFV and SDN markets from 2014 to 2018."

The Cloud computing, NFV and SDN: worldwide market sizing and forecast 2014-2018
Contents

6.Executive summary
7.Cloud computing, NFV and SDN are sized as separate markets, but their drivers and inhibitors have a significant degree of overlap
8.The spending rate in the SDN market will be slow compared with NFV and cloud computing because the business benefits of SDN are unclear
9.Hardware replacement is needed to support SCN technologies, CSPs will increase services revenue and software solutions are maturing
10.North America will lead the spending, particularly in the cloud computing and SDN markets, while EMEA will lead in NFV investments
11.NFV and SDN will have a more significant impact on established telecoms infrastructure and software in the next 10 years
12.Recommendations
13.Recommendations for CSPs and suppliers
14.Forecasts
15.Cloud computing investments increase in steps because virtualisation slows investment until capacity upgrades are needed
16.Large data centres and intense competition in the cloud services market will ensure that developed markets will lead cloud computing spending
17.CSP investment in private cloud systems will increase as their investment in enterprise cloud computing slows - as is the case with DCPs
18.NFV software will not mature significantly in the next 5 years so hardware and services will be the major revenue generators in this market
19.NFV revenue in NA will increase faster than in other regions thanks to the disruptive nature of ATandamp;T's Domain 2.0 initiative
20.SDN controllers will mature to COTS solutions for DCPs, which will reduce services revenue, and revenue for SDN-enabled hardware will increase
21.Enterprise WAN services will be the main driver of SDN revenue in all developed markets, and NA will lead in SDN investment
22.SDN overlay solutions will be more popular with CSPs than DCPs because overlay is a proven and non-disruptive CSP migration strategy
23.Summary of our market sizing and forecast methodology
24.Our comprehensive forecast model is supported by a sound knowledge of markets
25.Market drivers and inhibitors
26.Market drivers and inhibitors for the SCN technology markets - cloud computing, NFV and SDN
27.SCN market drivers: Integration and co-existence of NFV and SDN solutions with established OSS will accelerate growth [1]
28.SCN market drivers: Integration and co-existence of NFV and SDN solutions with established OSS will accelerate growth [2
29.SCN market inhibitors: The cloud market is already mature and will be less affected by the inhibitors than the NFV and SDN markets]
30.Business environment
31.The NFV and SDN markets are inhibited by the lack of a clear business case, product immaturity and other financial commitments
32.We forecast the following inaugural virtualisation events in CSPs during the next 7 years, which may propel SCN progress
33.Our roadmap forecasts that NFV will reach maturity much faster than CSP SDN, which is encouraging CSPs to invest in the technology
34.Market definition
35.Software-controlled networking architectural categories
36.Definitions of SCN market and revenue types
37.Definitions of the SCN market's sub-segments
38.Definition of geographical regions [1]
