"Communications service providers should not go too far down the network virtualisation path without implementing a network orchestration strategy."
Spending on traditional network management systems (NMS) and element management systems (EMS) products and professional services will stagnate at USD7.5 billion by 2020. Communications service providers (CSPs) will instead shift their investments to next-generation network management and orchestration systems, which will grow at a CAGR of 47% (2016–2020) to USD3.8 billion to support network function virtualisation (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN).

- a detailed, 5-year worldwide forecast for spending in the network orchestration and management software systems market, split into:
o traditional NMS sub-segments: consumer wireless, consumer fixed, business wireless, and business fixed
o virtual next-generation NMS (vNGN-NMS) network management and orchestration (NOM) sub-segments: network orchestration (NO), SDN controllers (SDN-C) and virtual infrastructure management (VIM)
o two delivery types: product-related and professional services
o eight geographical regions: Central and Eastern Europe (CEE); developed Asia–Pacific (DVAP), emerging Asia–Pacific (EMAP); Latin America (LATAM); the Middle East and North Africa (MENA); North America (NA); Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and Western Europe (WE).
