The Mobile Gateways Market Data contains updates for the core network market. The scope of this Market Data is expanding to address the developing market for SDN/NFV and the evolution of the core network. Market Data modeling is evolving along with the industry views on the telecom virtualization migration. The current version of this Market Data is an update for Q4 2014, and includes the following changes:

• This release continues the evolution of the Market Data to the emerging virtualized packet core, i.e. SDN and NFV. In the virtualized packet core, the concept of a unit or installed base no longer applies.

• In this release, we no longer segment the Packet Core forecast according to by the RAN technology, as that artifact provides no more useful information, since the same Packet Core can be used for TD-LTE, FDD-LTE, and LTE-A. 

• Inputs have been updated with vendor financial data reported for Q4 2013.

• Other inputs, such as subscriber forecasts and base station forecasts, have been updated with ABI Research’s latest estimates, most notably the LTE uptake and continued 3G demand.
