SDN, NFV & Network Virtualization Market is expected to grow at CAGR 60% between 2015 and 2020: Market Research Store

SDN_NFVThe SDN, NFV & Network Virtualization Bible: 2015 – 2020 – Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts. While the benefits of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and network virtualization are well known in the enterprise IT and data center world, both technologies also bring a hosts of benefits to the telecommunications service provider/carrier community.

Not only can SDN and network virtualization help address the explosive capacity demand of mobile traffic, but they can also reduce the CapEx and OpEx burden faced by service providers to handle this demand by diminishing reliance on expensive proprietary hardware platforms. SDN and network virtualization solutions have been widely deployed in data center and enterprise environments, and many service provider deployments are already underway.
