Virtual Network Services Trends in Europe

Author: Melissa Fremeijer
Senior Research Analyst, European Telecommunications and Networking

Abstract

"The acceptance and adoption of software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) technologies is well underway and changing how large enterprises architect their wide area networks to meet these rising network requirements," said Melissa Fremeijer, senior research analyst, IDC EMEA Telecommunications and Networking Group. "Most VNS offerings today revolve around security, WAN optimization, SD-WAN, and WAN routing, and contain a mix of on-premise, cloud-based services and hybrid platforms/infrastructures. The emergence of use cases for virtualization — such as hybrid cloud, network automation, and DevOps automation — will drive CSPs' rollout of further virtualized network services in the region."
