"Total spending in the cloud computing, network function virtualisation and software-defined networking markets will grow from USD7 billion in 2015 to USD28 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 32%."


Communications service providers (CSPs) have the difficult job of balancing tactical and strategic business goals, maintaining their relevance in an increasingly cloud-based ICT world, and assessing initial software-controlled networking (SCN) successes and frustrations. Meanwhile, network function virtualisation (NFV) continues to drive SCN market spending; enterprise and cloud services push software-defined networking (SDN) spending ahead; and cloud computing spend remains steady.

This report provides a 5-year forecast of spending split into:

- three technology types: cloud computing by communications service providers (CSPs); network function virtualisation (NFV) by CSPs; and software-defined networking (SDN) by CSPs
- three revenue types: hardware, software and services, with further sub-segmentation (see the ‘Market definition’ section for market segment definitions)
- four geographical regions: Asia–Pacific (APAC); Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA); Latin America (LATAM) and North America (NA).

The report also provides:

- an analysis of the trends, drivers and inhibitors for the adoption of these technologies, plus changes in our assumptions since our previous forecast update (published in September 2015)
- recommendations for CSPs and suppliers (vendors and systems integrators)

Data on CSPs’ internal spending is excluded from this report.
The analysis is based on Analysys Mason’s in-depth software-controlled networking (SCN) research, as well as interviews with at least 40 CSPs and vendors active in the SCN markets.
