REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – July 22, 2015 –Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, announced today that the Wireless Packet Core Equipment market is forecast to reach almost $5.5 billion by 2019. The faster-growing portion of the packet core market, the Evolved Packet Core segment, is expected to grow nearly 25 percent from 2015 to 2019.

“We expect that as NFV-based packet core systems are adopted by service providers, more flexible licensing terms will emerge that change pricing dynamics,” said Chris DePuy, Vice President at Dell’Oro Group. “Licenses that transfer from one system to another and pay-as-you-go licensing are catalysts to adopting annualized billing, which differs from perpetual licensing terms common today.”

Other Wireless Packet Core Report highlights:

  • Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Cisco, Huawei, Nokia and ZTE seen benefitting in the market overall
  • Analysis and forecast of the use of NFV-based licenses as well as the pricing impact of NFV on hardware revenues is included.
