More than ever before, service providers are focused on adding capacity to their wireless packet core networks to meet the explosive growth in mobile data traffic. At the same time, telecom equipment vendors are racing to deliver products that will enable service providers to increase capacity and capabilities not only of today’s wireless data networks, but also the future wireless data networks with next generation equipment, such as Evolved Packet Core (EPC) and 5G New Core products and Network Function (NFV) Cloud-Native implementations.

To take advantage of the opportunities in this market, component manufacturers, equipment vendors, service providers, and financial institutions need to answer critical business questions including:

  • How quickly will the Wireless Packet Core market grow and what trends will influence its growth?
  • What is the future demand for the various types of packet core products?
  • Which vendors lead the equipment market, and why?
  • What is the average selling price per session, and how will it change over time?
  • How will the emergence of the 5G Core impact the Evolved Packet Core market?
  • What is the impact on ASPs with NFV implementations?

To answer these and other important questions, Dell’Oro Group delivers both quarterly reports and 5-year forecasts on the Wireless Packet Core market.
