5G will push CSPs to accelerate and broaden their NFV/SDN-related initiatives

Mainstream adoption of NFV/SDN will coincide with 5G ramp

Leading communication service providers (CSPs) will accelerate and broaden their network transformations en route to deploying 5G and becoming digital service providers (DSPs). Softwarization, virtualization and cloudification are foundational aspects of a DSP’s network. These CSPs, which started their network virtualization journeys in the mid-2010s with virtual machines, are now transitioning to containers and ultimately to a cloud-native, microservices-based architecture.
