“Rapid increase in the number of mobile Long-Term Evolution (LTE) subscribers across the globe is driving the growth of the virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) market.”

The global growth of network infrastructure, increase in LTE mobile subscribers, and lower in Capital Expenditure (CapEx) and Operational Expenditure (OpEx) are some of the factors expected to drive the growth of the vEPC market. However, reluctance in transiting from legacy infrastructure to virtualization may hinder the market growth of the vEPC market.

“The cloud deployment type is expected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period.”

The cloud deployment type is one of most effective technologies that impact every line of business. Enterprises and telecom operators are adopting cloud-based vEPC solutions at a rapid pace due to the wide range of features, such as reliability, scalability, flexibility, and low costs. The cloud-based vEPC design offers distributed, stateless, and clustered elements, resulting in better performance and availability. The overall adoption of cloud-based solutions is in its nascent stage and is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period.

“LTE, VoLTE, and VoWiFi is expected to have the largest market share during the forecast period.”

MNOs are utilizing vEPC solution on their mobile core network to deliver the LTE, Voice over LTE (VoLTE), and Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) service for mobile subscribers. The virtualizing core network is very economical for operators compared to traditional EPC solutions. Additionally, VoWiFi also functions on same mobile core network as VoLTE. Mobile operators are delivering WiFi calling service to customers in low network coverage area. Several operators have deployed vEPC to extend VoLTE and VoWiFi services for customers across the globe, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.

“Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”

In terms of growth rate, APAC will be growing at the highest growth rate. Mobile operators in Japan, South Korea, and China are the early adopters of the vEPC solution. For example, SK Telecom, SoftBank, and China Mobile have implemented virtualized network components on their network for VoLTE, IoT, and Machine to Machine (M2M) communication. Majority of operators and enterprises in the APAC region are still using traditional EPC solution and wave is expected to shift towards vEPC solutions.

In-depth interviews were conducted with Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), marketing directors, innovation and technology directors, and executives from various key organizations operating in the vEPC market.
