This IDC study presents the worldwide market forecast for telecom network functions virtualization infrastructure (NFVI) for 2017–2022.

"Communications SPs globally recognize the need to digitally transform their network infrastructure and build more customer-centric business models. Embracing software-defined networking (SDN) principles and deploying network functions in virtualized (NFV) form factors are a strategic necessity not only for carriers as they invest in their future but also for vendors supplying those solutions to the market," says Rajesh Ghai, research director, Carrier Network Infrastructure research at IDC. "NFVI is the foundation on which this vision rests, and this document is IDC's first effort to size and forecast this strategically important segment of carrier network infrastructure."
