本報告提供NFV (網路功能虛擬化) 夥伴關係、生態系統市場相關調查、主要的生態系統、夥伴關係的特徵分析、今後2年的市場成長預測、產業的促進要素與課題、可利用的解決方案比較分析、市場的各地區形勢，及今後18-24個月間產業將發生的詳細趨勢等彙整資料，為您概述為以下內容。
Network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) solutions are deployable, scalable and available, and they meet or exceed the performance requirements of numerous markets. Most significant is that NFV brings both cloud computing and information technology (IT) capabilities into the telecom industry. Because they are developed using an open infrastructure that requires no vendor lock-in, service providers can deliver new services to their customers more quickly, while significantly reducing both operating and capital expenditures.
To maximize the average revenue per user (ARPU) associated with existing voice services and to avoid turning into a "me too" commodity service, service providers must become more agile and flexible, rolling out additional revenue generating services rapidly and repeatable. While NFV provides the ability to roll out services rapidly, a wide ecosystem allows operators to choose the best solutions possible and deliver an extensive range of unique value-added services. Session border control (SBC) is likely to be one of the most deployed virtualized network functions (VNFs) because it has the potential to save tremendous amounts of time and shorten the speed-to-market cycle, which is something every service provider wants to see.
The industry faces a large learning curve over the next five years; given the number of new technology components involved in enabling network functions to run in the cloud, this is not an area any single vendor or service provider can tackle on its own. Indeed, at this point there are more than enough partnerships and ecosystems that exist to meet the needs of any operator or vendor interested in NFV. The goal now is to see some market consolidation so the best options rise to the top.
To be successful in this new environment, companies that want to be leaders in SDN or NFV must not only transform products, services, form factors and business models, they also must develop a new class of partner ecosystems.
This new demand for viable and complete SDN/NFV solutions means even the largest network infrastructure companies must partner and collaborate with other suppliers to integrate their products and services with other vendors' products, confirm that each element works together and document what is required for the different elements to function together.
To make their own solutions more attractive for customers, suppliers will need to work with other vendors to give customers a complete list of the different hardware and software elements needed create a whole solution, as well as instructions on how to install and configure each element to make all the pieces work.
NFV Partnerships Underscore Importance of Collaboration examines the market for NFV partnerships and ecosystems, analyzing features of top ecosystems and partnerships, as well as areas of growth expected in the market over the next two years. It discusses drivers and challenges in the industry and includes a comparative analysis of solutions available. Finally, it examines the geographic landscape of the market and details trends that are likely to occur in the industry over the next 18-24 months.
