Network function virtualization (NFV) is a virtual network that is made up of a combination of hardware and software. It aids in the optimization of networks and related processes, as well as the reduction of power consumption, lowering equipment costs. It allows several apps to be accessed from a single network appliance. Network function virtualization provides a significant reduction in capital and operating costs. Hundreds of network devices, such as switches, workstations, hubs, routers, firewalls, virtual machines, servers, and other network-related components, make up a business network. Because network function virtualization solutions may give insights into bandwidth usage, network traffic, protocol analysis, and business applications, they are required for maintaining and controlling these devices. Identifying risks, detection, and moderation of security assaults, as well as improved network design in the future, all require different sorts of solutions.

IMPACT OF COVID-19:

The COVID-19 epidemic has had a negative impact on several economies all around the world. Lockdowns, social distance, and quarantines used to combat COVID-19 have had a significant negative impact on various businesses throughout the world, including the IT and telecommunications sectors. Enterprise virtual private network (VPN) servers have become a lifeline for enterprises and schools, with some people working from home and kids learning digitally.

In early 2020, China, one of the world's top producers and consumers of endpoint devices like as smartphones, PCs, and tablets, began to assess the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the worldwide network function virtualization industry. The closure of production factories in China for a few months, as well as limitations on the export and import of endpoint devices to and from China's restricted region, disrupted the supply chain and had a significant impact on the industry's production, sales, and operations. Furthermore, due to COVID 19, 3GPP, the worldwide organization creating 5G technology, announced a three-month delay in the completion of 5G standards in March 2020. The commercial development of NFV devices and 5G deployments would be slowed if releases are delayed. The COVID-19 epidemic has sent global economic activity into a tailspin never seen before. As a result, interruptions in the supply chain and delays in the release of 5G standards are expected to have a negative impact on the worldwide network function virtualization market.

MARKET ESTIMATION:

Various networking functions, such as traffic forwarding, traffic monitoring, security, caching, intrusion detection system, and domain name service, are included in virtual appliances. These tasks are commonly carried out over the edge using Virtual Customer Premise Equipment (VCPe). This has had a significant impact on businesses' efforts to simplify their network complications, and the category is likely to grow at a healthy pace in the future years.

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) controllers, virtual infrastructure managers, NFV orchestrator, and Wide Area Network (WAN) configuration are just a few of the components that make up orchestration and automation. Orchestration's major goal is to automate and improve network service development using a mix of Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs), scalability, self-healing, and network service resource lifecycle management. When there are no cross-domain network orchestrators, VNFs interface with service orchestrators. Because of the usefulness and criticality of orchestration and automation, it is widely used, especially when there is no vendor lock-in and the solutions are customized and off the shelf.

Enterprise clients are quickly adopting NFV because it provides major benefits such as centralized network administration, increased IT agility, and network customization through fast and reliable application services. Banking, Financial Services, and Insurance (BFSI), manufacturing, retail, healthcare, education, transportation and logistics, energy and utilities, and others, which include hospitality, transportation and logistics, media and entertainment, and utilities, have all been classified as enterprise customers. NFV implementation is currently widespread throughout the BFSI, retail, industrial, and healthcare industries.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.

 

The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
