Telco Cloud Adoption in Asia/Pacific

Authors: Shiv Putcha, Nikhil Batra, Bill Rojas
Abstract

This IDC study provides guidance and best practices for selecting the migration and transformation of the telco network to a cloud-based infrastructure. "By 2022, most leading mobile network operators in Asia/Pacific will need to have transformed parts or most of the current networks into cloud infrastructure to take advantage of software-defined network, virtualization, orchestration, and microservices in order to prepare for the massive internet of things (IoT) and enhanced mobile broadband services that 5G will enable. For fixed-line network operators, SDN and NFV will play an important role in offering more agility, more granularity, and competitive pricing for both domestic and international Ethernet and IP VPN services," says Bill Rojas, adjunct director, Telecom Research, IDC Asia/Pacific.
