This IDC Perspective anticipates key trends in the managed edge and content delivery services market in 2024. These include the acceleration of network as a service (NaaS) productization, CDN providers pivoting to edge cloud delivery, a move toward single-vendor secure access service edge (SASE) offerings, the emergence of multicloud networking, and growth in on-premises use cases for edge services. These trends are driven by macroeconomic forces such as the adoption of cloud services, global ecommerce growth, and security concerns.

"For service providers, 2024 is a pivotal year as several of the technological trends embraced in prior years will materialize into viable commercial models. To stay competitive, service providers have to embrace NaaS, capitalize on promising edge use cases, develop multicloud networking capabilities, and address cost sprawl related to a multivendor portfolio," says Ghassan Abdo, research VP, Worldwide Telecom at IDC.

"2024 will witness several new announcements by global communication service providers related to the introduction of NaaS products," says Jitesh Bhayani, research VP, Worldwide Telecom at IDC.
