Developing Telecoms' Special Report on SDN and NFV in Emerging Markets is available to download free of charge.
The related topics of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) are two of the most important issues currently exercising the minds of CTOs, CIOs, CMOs and CEOs at Mobile Network Operators and Service Providers (CSPs). This is the first major report to look at these topics from an emerging markets perspective.
Given the potential cost savings CSPs can make by deploying the technologies, it's reasonable to expect that interest would be greatest in the intensely competitive, low ARPU markets typical to emerging markets. Moreover, SDN and NFV offer new entrants to possibility of technologically leapfrogging incumbents. This report examines the obstacles that face widespread adoption of NFV and SDN technologies given the current technological capabilities of networks in emerging markets, and weighs these against the future benefits that will be delivered by virtualisation.
With contributions from Accenture, Atlantic ACM, Coleago Consulting, Current Analysis and Ovum this Special Report address these issues and attempt to provide some answers. When satisfactory technical, marketing and financial answers are found to all the questions, SDN and NFV have huge potential in developing and emerging markets - greater than that in developed markets given the surging demand for mobile data in particular.
