NEW YORK, Sept. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
New mobile and fixed technology roll-outs will be the main growth drivers, but automation and self-organised network (SON) features will enhance the value of NMS as a rich source of data and main control point, for the optimised operation of the network.
The worldwide network management systems (NMS) market is forecast to grow from USD4.6 billion in revenue in 2013 to USD5.6 billion in 2018, at a 3.9% CAGR, starting to recover from the 4% decline in 2012 and 2% growth in 2013. The NMS market is linked to equipment sales, and we expect LTE, small-cell and FTTx roll-outs to drive growth during the forecast period.
This report provides:
a detailed worldwide forecast for spending on NMS, split into:
four telecoms services:
four geographical regions (see below).
a summary of the key trends and factors impacting the NMS market between 2013 and 2018
an examination of the key market drivers and inhibitors for the NMS market during the next 5 years
recommendations for communications service providers (CSPs) and network equipment providers (NEPs)
insight into the impact of emerging technologies and opportunities – such as LTE, SON, network function virtualisation (NFV), software-defined networking (SDN), customer experience management (CEM), M2M and new digital economy services – on the NMS market
an examination of the CSPs' business environment that drives NMS market growth.
This report is a companion to the previously published NEPs' network management systems: worldwide market shares 2013, which details the business conditions in this market, as well as the market shares, offerings and strategies of the major NEPs.
Forecasts are split into the following four regions:
Asia–Pacific (APAC)Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Latin America (LATAM)North America (NA)
Table of contents
6.Worldwide NMS forecast, 2014–2018: LTE in emerging markets will inject growth, but only moderate growth is predicted for this mature market

36.Competition looks set to intensify and drive down mobile ARPU in all regions – declines in Europe will have the greatest impact
37.Fixed data traffic worldwide will increase by a factor of 3.6 between 2014 and 2019; capacity is built by 100G and submarine cable upgrades
38.FTTH/B growth will be stronger than cable and will help to drive IPTV adoption – particularly in DVAP
39.Investment in residential broadband will slow down after 2015, when fibre deployments will be largely complete in developed markets
40.Fixed broadband service revenue shows strong growth in Europe, and coverage is already high in DVAP and the USA

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff hap...
