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
7.Fixed and mobile broadband technologies and services will drive market growth in mobile, business services and residential broadband NMS
8.Large LTE roll-outs in emerging markets will drive long-term growth for APAC, while expansions will drive lower growth in developed markets
10.NMS need to enable operational flexibility and data access, to maintain value in multi-vendor environments with new services requirements
11.Recommendations for CSPs
12.Recommendations for NEPs
14.HetNets (LTE and small cell deployments) will be the main driver for continued growth in the mobile NMS market
15.Growth will return to EMEA as more CSPs in Western Europe modernise networks for LTE, while investment in developed APAC will decline
16.Business services NMS growth will be slow until 2015, as CSPs make use of their abundant existing capacity
17.APAC will register growth in business services spending for LTE backhaul upgrades and data centre connectivity
18.Video, new digital services, Wi-Fi and femtocells will be the key market drivers for residential broadband NMS, while NBN investments decline
19.Optical NGA investments continue to drive the overall growth in residential broadband NMS in emerging and mature markets
20.PSTN NMS maintenance spend is plateauing because CSPs are doing most of the maintenance in-house to reduce spending even further
21.LATAM will continue to have the slowest decline in PSTN NMS spending

35.The USA will have the largest number of LTE connections during the forecast period, but China will almost catch up by 2018
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

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
