REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to a recent report published by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, the telecommunications industry is still in the foundation-building phase for network functions virtualization (NFV), but the approach of 5G wireless deployments represents a potential inflection point for NFV adoption.

“Although there hasn’t been a ‘killer app’ to drive NFV, 5G represents a large investment target for telecom operators, not just for radio networks – but for numerous underlying technologies and systems linked to network virtualization,” said Shin Umeda, Vice President at Dell’Oro Group. “We expect operators to ramp their deployments of NFV technologies and infrastructure to take full advantage of their 5G networks and service offerings; and we should see some tangible results in the not-too-distant future,” continued Umeda.
