Software-Controlled Networking

Analysys Mason's Software-Controlled Networking programme helps clients to understand the impact of network transformation as software control increases. It covers emerging trends and technologies such as network function virtualisation (NFV), software-defined networking (SDN), self-organised network (SON), fixed–mobile convergence (FMC) and IT communications convergence.

The programme provides analysis that enables clients to minimise the challenges of network virtualisation. In addition, our research includes competitive analyses, forecasts, roadmaps and business case analyses for NFV, SDN and cloud computing, to help clients capture the benefits of network transformation.

Key Themes

  • The impact of SDN, NFV and cloud computing on OSS/BSS architecture and software market segmentation
  • The challenges and successes of network virtualisation as it moves from proofs of concept to commercial deployment
  • Software-controlled networking- (SCN-) driven service use cases and related business cases and deployment scenarios, including how virtualisation can change the economics of network deployments
  • Policy control requirements for network automation
