This IDC Market Perspective analyzes the Europe telecom network function virtualization market (VNF, NFVI, MANO, and associated services) for 2018 to 2023."The vast majority of European CSPs have started virtualization in specific network domains (mobile core, enterprise services, etc.). But with 5G and telco cloud at the horizon, they need to accelerate and adopt a holistic strategy.
