Software Defined Networks (SDN) has largely spawned from the need to separate Control and Data planes as a means of optimizing networks via software control and reduced dependency on specific hardware configurations and vendors. SDN facilitates simplified and more efficient network administration by way of decoupling the system that makes decisions about where traffic is sent (the control plane) from the underlying systems that forward traffic to the selected destination (the data plane).

A major goal of SDN is to both simplify and consolidate network functions, replacing specialized hardware with commodity switches, servers, etc. It enables vertical integration with application control over the network through SDN APIs. Instead of managing network assets separately, using separate interfaces, they are controlled collectively and in software, via unified solutions in an SDN environment.

Software Defined Networking (SDN) Solutions, Market Opportunities and Forecast 2015 - 2020 covers the following:

- Technology Review: A review of the underlying technology supporting SDN solutions
