Introduction

This report takes a close look at operator activities and the potential of SDN and NFV in the Middle East, with a focus on selected GCC countries. 

Highlights

  • Ovum expects that SDN and NFV are likely to be deployed through two distinct strategies, the more important being driven by headquarters of multinational operators in the GCC region.
  • Saudi Arabia offers the largest opportunity in terms of addressable market, due to the size of the country, data adoption, and number of subscribers.
  • Multiple tier-1 and tier-2 GCC operators say that many vendors are overinflating the cost-savings argument for SDN and NFV without proving the real value and flexibility of the technologies.

Features and Benefits

  • Helps vendors and system integrators understand the landscape in the Middle East, especially in key GCC markets.
  • Provides valuable insights into tier-1 operator plans and activities and paves the way for tier-2 and smaller operators' future planning efforts.
