World Software Defined Networking Market - Opportunities and Forecasts, 2015-2022
Software defined networking (SDN) is a technology that creates a global view of network to provide centralized, intelligence-based network control by separating the control logic from off-device computer resources. This technology has redefined the networking architecture by providing a flexible way to manage and control complex networks through efficient resource and data traffic management. Communication providers are increasingly adopting SDN for improved agility and robustness, ease in network congestion, cost and time efficiency, flexibility in network infrastructure, automation of tasks, and rapid innovation. Varying network conditions and application demands encouraged industries, including BFSI, telecom, education, defense, and manufacturing among others, to implement this emerging networking technology. Complex network traffic patterns, increasing cloud computing services, need for mobility services and efficient infrastructure, and big data analytics are the major factors that drive the market growth. On the other hand, lack of standardization and awareness among enterprises is likely to limit its growth. The increasing adoption of cloud computing services and need for technological advancement are expected to create numerous growth opportunities for the market.
