Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is an innovative approach to networking wherein the control of the network is de-coupled from the physical hardware and is handled by a software application, called “Controller.” The aim behind this approach is to eliminate physical infrastructure limitations of networks. In traditional network architecture, when a packet arrives at a switch, protocols built into the switch’s proprietary firmware tell the switch where to forward the packet. The switch sends every packet with the same destination over the same path, and treats all the packets in the same way. The traditional switches do not perform the application-specific traffic routing. However, in large enterprises, smart switches are been used which are designed with application-specific integrated circuits, and are sophisticated enough to recognize different types of packets and treat them differently. But, the limitation with these switches is that they are too expensive. SDN offers a cost-effective networking approach with an aim to lower down the operational cost thereby reducing latency and performing efficient network traffic management.

Today, enterprises are undergoing technology transformations, such as network virtualization and data center consolidation which in turn increases network complexity, network automation demands, and network transfer rates issue with big data and High-Performance Computing (HPC). Major problem encountered in converting network into cloud in the drop of transfer rates across the networks is the highly distributed networks with globally dispersed data centers and increased number of end-user devices. Enterprises are always on the lookout for cheap and efficient methods to manage networks as well as address the network issues faced commonly in running critical business applications.

SDN addresses these challenges by offering solutions that enables dynamic networking, real-time, and application-centric resource allocation. SDN also offers network automation, in terms of detecting and resolving potential bottlenecks. SDN advances the network in terms of direct programmability of networks, improves agility of the network, converts the network into a centrally managed one, automates the network, and orchestrates the network.

The SDN technology provides operators with several advantages including increased flexibility and performance along with simplified operations. With the emergence in 2011, the SDN concept gives network operators better control of their infrastructure, allowing optimization and customization, and thereby reducing the operational and capital costs.
The MarketsandMarkets studies have shown that despite the shift toward SDN, hardware is also expected to play a significant role in the overall network infrastructure. The studies have also shown that by 2018-2019, 35%-40% of the overall network spend will be on SDN, hence SDN is a potential growth market for the networking vendors offering enormous opportunities in the coming years.

The MarketsandMarkets’ SDN market research report covers solutions segment, end-user types, geographical analysis, worldwide trends, market forces, technology and market roadmaps, business models, adoption factors, and company profiles for key industry players in the SDN and network virtualization space.

Telecommunication providers have been looking for ways to optimize costs and increase network efficiency over the last decade. At the same time, the industry is also witnessing a huge push for newer forms of networking that are faster, simpler, and easier to manage. In this aspect, Software-Defined Networking (SDN) has grown into the key technology to address this trend. SDN is a first of its kind networking concept that has picked up significant market traction over the last year. The technology helps communication providers to redirect network traffic and ease network congestion, ultimately resulting in significant cost savings that can be utilized to drive core business goals. Whereas the SDN and network virtualization market is presently at a nascent fragmented stage, industry consolidation is set to happen in the near future, driving better adoption with concentrated messaging in enterprises.

The market for SDN will evolve gradually from being a standards-driven one to becoming a function of software development, which would ultimately revolutionize network utilization and become inevitable. Over the next 5 years, SDN is expected to become highly pervasive, ubiquitous across telecom networks, and penetrating into enterprise networks.

The major forces driving the market are factors such as network expansion, telco Operating Expenditure (OPEX) savings, and mobility, which will positively impact the SDN market because of the global push for mobility. At the same time, opportunities in controller applications and Value-Added Resellers (VARs) products will benefit the growth in this market. The table given below highlights that the global SDN market by revenues is estimated to grow from $290 million in 2014 to $3,670 million by 2019. This represents a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 66.1% from 2014 to 2019. The SDN market is set to witness a Year-Over-Year (Y-O-Y) growth from 59.66% from 2014 to 2015 and is expected to reach 76.10% between 2018 and 2019.
