Software defined networking (SDN) and virtualization are poised to transform network and service architecture thanks to improvements in technologies that offer improved performance and lower costs. As the border between Cloud Computing and network infrastructure continues to blur, so does the demarcation between the network as a whole and those network elements (servers, terminals, etc.) that comprise the network.

Communications Service Providers (CSP) will benefit from improved economics brought forth by Network Function Virtualization (NFV) as carriers leverage CPU virtualization and other Cloud techniques to migrate previously expensive network functions to cheaper general-purpose hardware running virtual machines.

This research evaluates the technologies, market drivers and outlook for SDN and NFV in telecommunications networks. The report assesses the implications for SDN and NFV on the telecom ecosystem and analyzes the impact of different approaches. The report includes market forecasts for SDN and NFV from 2015 through 2020.
