This IDC study covers the revenue for communications processor semiconductors, including system-on-a-chip (SoC) ASSPs and general-purpose standalone microprocessors, for the calendar year 2016. It also provides a competitive analysis of the worldwide communications processor market for the calendar year 2016."Following the megamergers of 2015, large-scale mergers and acquisitions (M&As) and consolidation continued in 2016," said Abhi Dugar, research director, Semiconductor Core Technologies: Cloud Infrastructure. "Meanwhile, migration of workloads to public cloud and the adoption of SDN/NFV-based architectures and open source technologies are creating new opportunities for vendors of communications processors."
