Operators that Have Not Already Launched SD-WAN Should Make this a Priority

Telecoms operators are undecided about whether (and how) to launch their own SD-WAN solutions. If they do not, they risk conceding connectivity market share to new competitors and disruptors such as SD-WAN vendors, other service providers and other operators. Operators can become market leaders in SD-WAN by first launching simple solutions and then adding more-complex capabilities later to generate new revenue.

This report helps telecoms operators to understand why they should launch SD-WAN and discusses the options, including our recommendations about the different strategies that operators can adopt. The report also provides recommendations for telecoms operators that are considering launching SD-WAN, or have launched it already but want to develop their offerings. This report will also be of interest to other companies, such as technology vendors, that are involved in the SD-WAN market.

In this report, we answer the following questions:

  • Why should telecoms operators launch SD-WAN? What are the risks to MPLS revenue?
  • How many SD-WAN solutions should an operator offer at launch?
  • Which features should be offered, alongside the basic SD-WAN functionality?
  • Which organisations should be targeted as customers?
  • How should operators sell to these customers?
