Commercial 5G deployments boost MCN market

The Mobile Core Network (MCN) market is poised for strong growth in 2022, according to a leading analyst.


A recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, which surveys the telecommunications, networking and data center IT industries, revealed that the MCN market has turned positive in the final quarter of 2021 as 5G Standalone commercial launches begin to accelerate.


“The expected growth rate for 2022 is more optimistic than reported last quarter with the commercial deployments of more 5G SA enhanced Mobile Broadband [eMBB] networks,” stated Dave Bolan, Research Director at Dell’Oro Group. “We count 14 commercial 5G SA networks deployed by Communication Service Providers for eMBB services. Five of the 14 5G SA networks went commercial after the close of 3Q 2021 quarter. Europe had a surprising uptick in 3Q 2021 with 5G SA network commercial launches primarily in Germany.”


Bolan’s report indicated that 5G Packet Core revenues for the quarter were spread across only six vendors: Ericsson, Huawei, Mavenir, NEC, Nokia, and ZTE.
