Telecom operators' demand for software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) markets is estimated at EUR 816 million in 2014 and projected to reach over EUR 3 billion in 2017 and nearly EUR 7 billion by 2019, according to Idate. SDN was first adopted by datacentres and cloud service providers, and now SDN and NFV products are available for telecom networks as well. The carriers that are the frontrunners in this area, including AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, NTT and Telefonica, have all announced plans for a large-scale transition to a new networking architecture.
