Software Defined Networking Market Analysis, Key Indicators and Forecast to 2026

Traditional networking architecture are slow to response to demand generated by connected objects in a particular network. That’s where software defined networking (SDN) comes into the picture. Software Defined Networking separates control layer of a particular network from infrastructure and application layer, so that a network operator can easily manage the data flow through a centralized console, without touching switches and routers.

SDN allows network engineer and operators to response instantaneously to changing business demand. A traditional network generally uses special appliance such as firewall and load balancer, instead SDN usages a software application that usages the controller to manage data plane.

In SDN, software control entire network and its physical devices. It’s about a software is integrated into networking hardware so that hardware can itself take decision about where to send data packets. It makes SDN next generation networking solution.

Software Defined Networking usages northbound API to integrate control layer and application layer and uses southbound APIs to programmatically control data plane forwarding decision.

Global Software Defined Networking Market: Drivers and Challenges

Technological advancements in cloud computing and data center are contributing immensely in the growth of global Software Defined Networking market. Some of the big players of the market such as VMware and Cisco are offering separate Software Defined Networking solution for data center.

Software Defined Networking deployment in data center is reducing downtime and increasing productivity of business organizations.

In addition to this, increasing data consumption via mobile devices and growth in OTT services are putting enormous pressure on telecom service providers to digitalize their existing 3G and 4G networks.

To meet increasing demand of data consumption, telecommunication service providers are transforming their networks with the help of Software Defined Networkingtechnology.

Though Software Defined Networkingfacilitates network operators to control switches and routers through software but it doesn’t virtualize functions and commands. In other worlds, Software Defined Networkingdoesn’t allow to run the central network in software hardware.

Moreover, enterprises are still reluctant to adopt Software Defined Networkingtechnology to some extent. They have fear that services running on their existing network will get hampered.
