Insights on the Virtual Core Industry in 2022 – 5G SA is Taking Longer Than Anticipated – Yahoo Finance

DUBLIN, Sept. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “Virtual Core – Gateway to the Real 5G” report has been added to  ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The journey towards SA core is clearly not as smooth as was envisioned. This report looks at the who and the how and the when of the adoption status.
Considering that containers do technically qualify as VNFs, and most VNF vendors have containerization of network functions on their radars anyway, we had to relook at the earlier characterizations.
This report concentrates on the market for virtualized Core.
The report now considers two types of virtualized cores:
Virtual machine (VM)-based virtualized Core
Container-based virtualized Core
5G SA is clearly taking longer than anticipated. The reasons are many – telco ennui with the constant architectural flux without commensurate returns being the main one. Telcos have had their fingers burnt with the seemingly never-ending development cycle of a reliable and acceptable MANO.
