A new report published by Dell’Oro Group, cumulative revenue for Network Equipment Services to service providers is projected to range between $200 and $250 billion over the next five years, reflecting strong growth opportunities for both product attached and non-product attached services.
Huawei held the highest market share in 2018.
“While we envision that the coupling between equipment and services will remain strong for product attached services, we are increasingly optimistic about the role non-product attached services will play to help operators navigate the network of tomorrow,” said Stefan Pongratz, Director of Network Equipment Services Research at Dell’Oro Group. “We believe that network complexity will dramatically increase in the future as service providers strive to incorporate SDN/NFV and deliver new products related to IoT and 5G. As a result, we believe the software component of networks and the amount of Services will be larger in the future,” continued Pongratz.
