Japan SDN and NFV Trends, 2016: Situation in WAN and Impact on Communication Service Providers and Datacenter Service Providers

This IDC study provides an overview of the software-defined network (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) implementation trends in Japan, and discusses the impact they have on the strategies of telecom operators and datacenter service providers. Telecom operators and some DC service providers are actively engaged in providing SDN and NFV solutions, thereby carrying out bold infrastructural reforms. Moreover, the use of WAN and distributed DCs will serve as a premise for the utilization of new IT models such as hybrid cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) that are likely to grow in the future. The application of SDN and NFV technologies in WAN will pave the road for these new IT utilization in a big way. "Telecom operators and DC service providers should begin to consider their position with regard to future market opportunities in wide-area distributed solutions," says Yoko Ono, senior market analyst, IDC Japan.
