Software Defined Network Market


Market Insight

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and adaptable evolving architecture that makes it suitable for the high-bandwidth, dynamic nature of today's applications. SDN allows the programming of network activity by software applications using open APIs in a centrally managed way. The entire network and its equipment can be handled consistently by operators by applying SDN. The architecture of SDN is directly programmable, agile, centrally managed, programmatically configured, and also features open standards-based and vendor-neutral. SDN is gaining popularity as the networks are being overwhelmed due to increased activity in other areas such as infrastructure, specifically in cloud computing and storage areas. The two main characteristics that define SDN is the decoupling of data and control planes and control plane programmability.


Existing network infrastructure is experiencing tremendous pressure as a result of an increase in network traffic. Thus, the importance of network management is growing rapidly. The flexibility provided by SDN to effectively manage the networks and optimize the connectivity required for sales, customer service, and internal communications. The instant deployability of new applications, services, and business models is fuelling the adoption of SDN. The adoption of SDNs leads to a reduction in operational costs of the organization, firm, etc. SDNs also help in managing the security of the network more efficiently and accurately devoid of any loopholes in the network. These things are majorly driving the market. The only restraint the market faces is the low availability of skills required for operating SDNs as this is still an evolving technology. Though this is an evolving technology the awareness regarding it is growing at a rapid pace. Thus, it is expected to provide new opportunities.


Geographically North America region is anticipated to be the highest revenue-generating region. The network traffic in this region is growing rapidly. Therefore, digital network management is gaining importance.  This is leading to the growing adoption of the software-based network. Its adoption will help the end-user industries to effectively manage their network system and smooth running of operations. Europe is expected to be the second-largest revenue-generating region as demand for SDN is increasing constantly. Asia-Pacific is projected to be the third-highest revenue-generating region. As there is increased demand from developing nations in this region.
