About Software-Defined Networking (SDN)

SDN is an evolving network architecture in which the network control and the forwarding plane are decoupled and can be programmed directly. This transfer of control from specific network devices to manageable computing devices simplifies the management of network infrastructure in an enterprise environment.

SDN provides control to enterprise business operations through a single logical point, simplifying network design and operation. In addition, this architecture streamlines operational functions of network infrastructure through instructions from SDN controllers.

The analysts forecast the global software-defined networking market to grow at a CAGR of 34.64% during the period 2016-2020.

New Report Released: - Global Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Market 2016-2017

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global software-defined networking (SDN) market: Brocade Communications, Cisco Systems, HP Development Company, Huawei Technologies, Juniper Networks, and VMware.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 6Wind, Allied Telesis, Arista, Avaya, Big Switch Networks, Broadcom, Ciena, Coriant, Cumulus Network, Ericsson, F5 Network, IP Infusion, Metaswitch Networks, Midokura, NEC, Nevion, Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent), Pica8, Plexxi, PLUMgrid, Pluribus Networks, Riverbed, Sonus, Verizon Enterprise, and Viptela.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “Emergence of SD-WAN will be the key trend leading to market growth. SD-WAN is capable of addressing the configuration challenges through automation of WAN edge router configurations. Some of the benefits of SD-WAN include a reduction in cost, lowered complexity, and increased flexibility by enabling WAN to react to changing requirements. SD-WAN is a trend in SDN-based WAN implementations. Evaluating SD-WAN technology in terms of hidden cost, vendor lock-in, and return-on-investment for successful implementation is important.”

According to the report, growing demand for advanced services will be one of the key drivers spurring market growth. Enterprises worldwide are expanding their business reach to gain competitive advantages in the market. The increase in business activities requires organizations to deploy infrastructure services at a rapid pace. In such a scenario, the whole process may take a few days’ to a month's time. Over the years, virtualization has helped organizations reduce data center CAPEX and OPEX.

Further, the report states that lack of expertise will be one of the challenges impeding the growth of the market. The personnel employed to handle SDN should have the knowledge of the infrastructure and the ability to configure several network infrastructures such as switches and routers. In addition, the personnel is expected to understand the business needs to align the IT requirements with it. They should also possess the knowledge of configuring OpenFlow, which acts as an interface between SDN controller and infrastructure, and about the northbound API, which is commonly RESTful. However, the number of skilled resources is lower than the market demand.

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.
