Partnerships, Collaborations, Agreements, and Acquisitions, and New Product Launches, to Achieve Growth in the Global Virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) Market


Virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) is a framework used for virtualizing the core network functions, which converged voice and data on a 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) network. It also supports 2G, 3G, non-3GPP standards, wireless broadband, and the 5G core network. vEPC runs traditional hardware core network functions over software modules using Virtual Machines (VMs), which are hosted on Cost Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) servers. MarketsandMarkets expects the vEPC market size to grow from USD 968.9 Million in 2017 to USD 7,975.3 Million by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 52.4% during the forecast period.

Key players in the vEPC market include Affirmed Networks (US), Ericsson (Sweden), Huawei Technologies (China), Mavenir (US), ZTE Corporation  (China), Athonet (Italy), Cisco Systems (US), NEC Corporation  (Japan), Nokia Corporation (Finland), Samsung (South Korea), and the key innovators includes ExteNet Systems (US), Telrad Networks (Israel), and Core Network Dynamics (Germany). These players have adopted various strategies, such as partnerships, collaborations, agreements, and acquisitions, and new product launches, to achieve growth in the global vEPC market.

Ericsson is one of the leading providers of vEPC solutions and services. The company’s major business segments include networks, global services, and support solutions.
