TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report - Global Software-defined Networking Market 2012-2016
TechNavio today launched its report, Global Software-defined Networking Market 2012-2016, based on an in-depth analysis covering the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions. The report aims to aid decision makers' understanding of the present and future landscape of the market.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Networking team said: ''The Networking industry is witnessing a dramatic increase in smart mobile devices and content, server virtualization, and cloud services. This increase is creating heavy pressure on traditional network architectures. Some legacy networks are hierarchical in nature, containing Ethernet switches arranged in a tree structure. This static architectural design was useful in earlier times when client-server computing prevailed. But in the current dynamic computing and storage environment, this architecture is not suited for the requirements of enterprise data centers, campuses, and carrier environments. Hence, network architecture is evolving with market requirements.''
According to the report, one of the main growth drivers is increasing virtualization in network environments. Customers in the past have often wished to tune their network but have been limited by the constraints in network management tools. Virtual networks can be programmed, bonded to workloads, and are scalable to demand.
Further, the report reveals that one of the main challenges is uncertainty in the market due to it being the early adoption stages of Software-defined Networking (SDN).
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
