For a limited time, Ovum Research is offering its clients a comprehensive series of reports and market trackers focused on two areas that are critical to communications service providers: software-defined networks (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV).




The NFV & SDN Research Pack includes six comprehensive research products developed by Informa’s Heavy Reading research division:

The Composable Telco: To move their businesses forward into the software-driven, virtualized future, CSPs need a way to combine building blocks of software automation on demand, in response to specific business needs – or in a word, “composability.” This report identifies and analyzes the drivers for the composable telco, examines the key building blocks of composability, and explores the innovative approaches that service orchestration vendors are taking in this area.

Future of Virtualization: Focus on IoT Platform: This report examines application enablement platforms for the Internet of Things, utilizing data collected from nine companies that provide such solutions. It also analyzes where the market is today, as well as investments vendors are making into the technology and trends expected over the next 18-24 months.

Transforming Data Center Infrastructure for SDN, NFV & Cloud: This report examines why NFV, SDN and cloud are so important to CSPs, and explores their impact on data center infrastructure. It discusses the architectural considerations CSPs must make regarding their data center strategies, including leveraging open source, whether to use a centralized or distributed architecture, and how to scale virtualized resources. It also analyzes NFV infrastructure (NFVI) initiatives of six leading technology suppliers.

Programmable Transport: Use Cases Emerge as Capability Improves: This report examines SDN-enabled bandwidth-on-demand/network-as-a-service (NaaS) solutions, comparing the solutions offered by 12 leading transport network and data center networking vendors. The report also considers what hurdles are still in the way of achieving truly dynamic, multiservice, virtualized multi-vendor networks supported seamlessly with dynamic, automated bandwidth on demand.

NFV Market Tracker: This PowerPoint-based product delivers a detailed view of the adoption of NFV technology by CSPs. It includes three core components: (1) a five-year market sizing forecast that captures NFV spend globally and regionally by network function; (2) results of a worldwide survey of CSPs regarding NFV capex and deployment plans; and (3) profiles of key technology suppliers that are helping to drive and shape the NFV sector.

SDN Market Tracker: This PowerPoint-based product focuses on the adoption and deployment of SDN technology by CSPs. Like the NFV Market Tracker, it includes a five-year market sizing forecast, results of a worldwide survey of CSPs regarding SDN capex and deployment plans, and profiles of key SDN technology suppliers.

The list price for these products is nearly $24,000. But for a limited time only, Ovum Research is offering this critical research pack for $19,995. The purchase price includes a full enterprise license, which means the products can be made available to anyone in the purchaser’s organization.

In addition, purchasers are entitled to three hours of conference call consultations with Heavy Reading analysts to further discuss and analyze research findings. Find out more here.
