Mobile Core Network and Multi-access Edge Computing revenues recover in the first quarter of 2022, according to Dell’Oro Group

Mobile Core Network and Multi-access Edge Computing market revenue for the first quarter of 2022 recovered to a positive year-on-year growth rate after declining in the fourth quarter of 2021, the first decrease since the fourth quarter of 2017, according to the research and market firm Dell’Oro Group.

According to Dell’Oro GroupMCN market growth was driven by a double-digit percentage annual (Y/Y) revenue growth rate in the 5G MCN market that outpaced revenue declines (Y/Y) in the 4G MCN and IMS Core markets.

Dell’Oro Group notes that the MCN market in China had a high growth rate, while the non-China MCN market had a negative growth rate during the quarter.

“With the continued aggressive build-out of stand-alone (SA) 5G networks in China, the China region in Q1 2022 substantially increased its 5G MCN market share over the last quarter,” said Dell Research Director ‘Gold Group. Dave Bolan.

“As of the close of the first quarter of 2022, we identified 25 mobile network operators that have commercially launched 5G SA mobile broadband (MBB) networks with services available to consumers. 5G Core providers include cisco, ericsson, huawei, national executive committee, Nokia, SamsungY ZTE. We have identified 150 MNOs with 5G Core contracts with the above vendors and Mavenir There are still more 5G Core contracts that vendors have acknowledged without disclosing the associated MNOs,” says Bolan.

“We see fewer 5G Core network launches scheduled for 2022 compared to 2021 when 16 networks were launched. However, many are gearing up for launches in 2023 and we project mid-single-digit percentage year-over-year growth rates for the remainder of 2022,” Bolan predicts.

“One of the most anticipated and hyped 5G Core releases is wireless dish – the first to run 5G Core in the public cloud. The company is preparing to launch in many cities in mid-June 2022 to meet regulatory coverage requirements. In early May 2022, Dish had a soft launch in its first city, Las Vegas. Nokia is the main supplier of 5G Core”, says Bolan.

“Multi-access edge computing deployed by MNOs has barely scratched the surface despite all the hype, except in the China region, which has deployed thousands of MEC nodes in its MNO networks, with a mix of public and private MEC sites. private. ”

Dell’Oro Group highlighted the following findings in its Q1 2022 Mobile Core Network and Multi-Access Edge Computing Report:
