Abstract

This IDC Market Perspective discusses significant developments in the networking and communications infrastructure market during CY 2Q18. The scope of the discussion covers end users such as hyperscale datacenter operators and private cloud and telecommunications/mobile service providers as well as the supply chain including systems, software, and semiconductor vendors.

"With increasing network disaggregation and the adoption of SDN and NFV, vendors are delivering advancements in switch silicon, smart/intelligent NICS (iNICs), communications processors, and associated software such as network operating systems and network visibility, monitoring, and control software," said Abhi Dugar, research director, Enabling Technologies: Cloud and Enterprise Infrastructure. "Meanwhile, large open source projects are maturing further, many of them driven by the major telecommunications service providers as well as hyperscale cloud datacenter operators."
