Virtual Evolved Packet Core Market Is Expected To Reach Usd 4 Billion By 2023

Posted by Vilas MRFR on August 2nd, 2019

Market Synopsis:

In the area of 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) networks, there is a necessity for virtualizing the core functions to combine voice and data networks. To reconcile these networks, a framework known as virtualized evolved packet core (vEPC) is helpful which can run on individual components such as hardware and software which are operated on low-cost COTS (low-cost commercial off the shelf) servers. VEPC helps in lowering operational and capital expenditures by minimizing dependency on hardware and by increasing speed service delivery. With the implementation of vEPC, mobile providers can mix the individual network components as per the needs of the customers.

The progression of the Internet of Things (IoT), rapid growth in data traffic by usage of smartphones and popularity of online videos are the significant drivers of the global virtualized evolved packet core market. The curtailing of operational and capital expenditures are fuelling the market growth.  Virtualized evolved packet core helps in combining 4G, 3G, 2G, and small cell networks into a single solution which can be provided as virtualized services thereby reducing the cost of operation by 30 to 40%. The vEPC can be easily controlled or tacked even it is dispersed in different networks or different geographies.

Key Findings

  • On February 28,2019 VMware Inc., a subsidiary of Dell technologies and provider of cloud computing and platform virtualization software and services, demonstrated company’s portfolio offerings to chart their service to 5G for communication service providers.
  • In November 2019, Radisys Corporation, the global leader in open telecom solutions partnered with Mavenir to enable communication service providers to deploy M-CORD (Mobile Central Office Re-architected as a Datacentre) as a public reference solution.

Regional Analysis

North America holds the largest market share for global Virtual Evolved Packet Core Market. The presence of significant market players and early adoption of vEPC among enterprises is majorly driving the market in this region and is expected to continue through the forecast period. Radisys Corporation, a global leader in open telecom solutions, is working with Qualcomm technologies Inc. to deploy their eNodeB software to deliver an integrated, pre-validated and tested solution for Qualcomm chipsets. These chipsets are capable of providing an end-to-end RAN SoC (system on a chipset) targeted for small cells and CBRS deployments. This solution helps in providing the path for the 5G network where network slicing is the primary requirement.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to show significant growth rate during the forecast period. The rising demand for cost-effective packet core technology and rising data demands from enterprises are primarily driving the market in the region. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a South Korean Multinational Electronics company, has deployed their virtualized Adaptiv core solution for SK Telecom a South Korean telecommunications operator. The company’s core solution is built on standardized server hardware capable of managing IT systems in the entire network. The critical responsibility of the solution is the management of traffic from the Internet of Things. The SK telecom will be benefitted by minimizing the infrastructural extension costs and leveraging network resources.
