"Intelligent assurance automation based on ML/AI, the need to assure virtual, hybrid and cloud-native networks for 5G and dynamic business services such as SD-WAN will drive revenue growth during the forecast period."
The overall assurance market will reach USD6.8 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 1.9%. 5G will drive the next wave of spending on assurance as new investments in legacy networks are capped. Disruptive networking and cloud technologies such as network function virtualisation (NFV), software-defined networking (SDN), edge computing and network slicing will require new assurance techniques, and will therefore cause a shift in communications service providers' (CSPs') spending patterns.
