Research and Markets: Global Software Defined Networking (SDN) Market Report 2014-2019

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/b7st8k/software_defined) has announced the addition of the "Global Software Defined Networking (SDN) Market Report 2014-2019" report to their offering.

This 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.

Studies have shown that despite the shift toward SDN, hardware is also expected to play a significant role in the overall network infrastructure. 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.

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.
