SDN, NFV Heralding a Telco Revolution
This IDC Market Note provides our take on the recent SDN NFV World Congress held in The Hague. Although a slow-burner, a series of presentations at the congress showed SDN and NFV deployments are multiplying and (at last) realizing the potential we first identified in our research six years ago.
"SDN and NFV are leading a revolution in the way telcos organize their networks, and they are central to the successful deployment of 5G technology," said Mike Cansfield, associate vice president, IDC Europe Telecommunications and Networking. "As a consequence, both SDN and NFV will have a major impact on the sector."
