The NEPs' network management systems: worldwide forecast 2014-2018

NEW YORK, Sept. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

The NEPs% network management systems: worldwide forecast 2014–2018–2018.html

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:



residential broadband


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)

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data...
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
In recent years, at least 40% of companies using cloud applications have experienced data loss. One of the best prevention against cloud data loss is backing up your cloud data.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chad Jones, chief strategy officer at Deep Information Sciences, will look differently at IoT data so enterprises can fully leverage their IoT potential. He’ll sha...
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....
