The vendor comparison report on Software-Defined Wide-Area Networking (SD-WAN) based on MnM DIVE methodology covers a detailed study of the major players offering SD-WAN solutions. The top 25 vendors of SD-WAN were analyzed on the basis of their product offering and business strategy. The vendors were shortlisted based on their solution capabilities, technology innovations, industry coverage, viability, breadth of product offering, and other criteria.

The report will help the stakeholders, such as SD-WAN vendors, technology partners, system integrators, consultants, distributors, and value-added resellers to make business strategies and decisions on the deployment of SD-WAN solutions.

The vendors have been placed into four categories based on their performance in each criterion: “Vanguards,” “Innovators,” “Emerging,” and “Dynamic.”

The Matrix Will Look Like as Shown Below:

  • Vanguards: Vendors who fall in this category generally receive high scores for most of the evaluation criteria. They have strong and established product portfolio and have a very strong market presence. They provide mature and reputable solutions and have strong business strategies.
  • Innovators: Innovators are vendors that have demonstrated substantial product innovations as compared to their competitors. They have very focused product portfolio. However, they do not have a very strong growth strategy for their overall business.
  • Dynamic: They are established vendors with very strong business strategies. However, they are low in product portfolio. They generally focus on specific types of technology related to the product.
  • Emerging: They are vendors with niche product offering, who are starting to gain their position in the market. They do not have much strong business strategies as compared to other established vendors. They might be new entrants in the market and require some more time before getting significant traction in the market.

Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a transformational application installed centrally in existing WAN connections, used by enterprises to simplify their branch networking performance over large regions. It is deployed in enterprise WAN, which uses Software-Defined Network (SDN) to route data traffic to remote locations, thereby reducing data congestion. SD-WAN establishes a logical connection between WAN edge devices placed in different branch offices and creates a secure path across multiple WAN connections and carriers, such as hybrid internet and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) architectures.

SD-WAN offers companies new alternatives for diminishing the WAN cost and enhancing the overall performance by reducing the CAPEX and OPEX. SD-WAN solutions offer businesses better security and improved agility and responsiveness. The major growth drivers of the SD-WAN market include rising demand for mobility services, reduced OPEX, increasing need among the customers for simplified network architecture, and cloud-based technology usage with improved Quality of Service (QoS). The SD-WAN market faces challenges such as lack of security and bandwidth provisioning, which limit the market growth.

The report on vendor comparison in SD-WAN based on MarketsandMarkets DIVE methodology reviews major players that offer SD-WAN solutions and outlines the findings and analysis on the basis of two broad categories: Product Offerings and Business Strategies. Each category carries various criteria, based on which the vendors are evaluated.

Based on an extensive secondary and primary research, key information about the vendor’s product offering and business strategies was gathered. After the completion of data gathering and verification process, the scores and weightage for shortlisted vendors against each parameter were finalized. After evaluating all the vendors, a comparison scorecard was prepared and each vendor was placed in the MnM DIVE matrix based on their product offering and business strategy scores.

This report is instrumental in helping the stakeholders, such as SD-WAN vendors, system integrators, consultants, value-added resellers, and technology partners, to make business decisions on SD-WAN solution deployments.

The report covers the comprehensive study of key SD-WAN vendors, including Cisco Systems, Inc., Citrix Systems, Inc., Aryaka Networks, Inc., CloudGenix, Inc., Ecessa Corporation, Silver Peak, Inc., VeloCloud Networks, Inc., Viptela, Riverbed Technology, Talari Networks, Brain4Net, Inc., CenturyLink, Inc., Elfiq Networks, FatPipe Networks Inc., Glue Networks, Nuage Networks, Peplink, Teldat, TELoIP Inc., Cato Networks, Windstream Communications, InfoVista, Cradlepoint, Inc., Versa Networks, and Mushroom Networks Inc.
