2022 Virtual Core Report - Featuring 6WIND, Affirmed Networks, Airtel and AT&T Among Others

Sep 9, 2022

The journey towards SA core is clearly not as smooth as was envisioned. This report looks at the who and the how and the when of the adoption status. Considering that containers do technically qualify as VNFs, and most VNF vendors have containerization of network functions on their radars anyway, we had to relook at the earlier characterizations. This report concentrates on the market for virtualized Core. The report now considers two types of virtualized cores: Virtual machine (VM)-based virtualized Core Container-based virtualized Core 5G SA is clearly taking longer than anticipated. The reasons are many - telco ennui with the constant architectural flux without commensurate returns being the main one. Telcos have had their fingers burnt with the seemingly never-ending development cycle of a reliable and acceptable MANO. Executive Summary: The Executive Summary provides an overview of the market size of one of the most potent network functions (NF) in mobile telephony - the core; in the context of the efforts to virtualize them; into virtual machines and containers. Chapter 2, The Core Journey, highlights the different stages and phases in the journey of the mobile core from 2G through 5G. Chapter 3, VNFs - VMs and Containers, compares and contrasts the origins, morphologies and features of the principal actors in this report - VNFs. More specifically, it defines containers and microservices and discusses their morphology and implementation methodology. It also traces the NFV evolution and establishes the link between VMs and containers. Chapter 4, Telco Profiles, examines the approach adopted by leading telcos vis-a-vis containerization and virtualization of the Core. Chapter 5, Solution Provider Profiles, identifies and categorises the vendors or solution providers; and analyses their initiatives in the context of the network functions covered. Chapter 6, Quantitative Forecasts, covers the quantitative forecasts in providing ringside as well as inside views of the VM and Container-based Core markets by breaking them along morphology, geographical region, deployment methodology, hosting mode, end-user and application criteria.
