Software-defined networking in a wide area network (WAN) simplifies the management and operation of a WAN by decoupling the networking hardware from its control mechanism. It implements virtualization technology to improve data center management and operation.
The software-defined WAN allows companies to build higher performance WANs use lower cost leased lines, thereby enabling businesses to partially or wholly replace more expensive private WAN connection technologies such as MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching).
Also, Wide area networking allows the companies to extend their computer networks over large distances, to connect remote branch offices to data centers and each other, and deliver the applications and services required to perform business functions.
A centralized controller is used to set policies and prioritizes traffic. The SD-WAN takes into account these polices and the availability of network bandwidth to route traffic. These policies and the availability of network bandwidth to route traffic. Also this is help to ensure that the application performance meets service level agreements.
Also the Bandwidth requirements are also increasing, especially for applications featuring high-definition video. It can be expensive and difficult to expand WAN capability, with corresponding difficulties related to network management and damage control. Software defined-WAN products are designed to address these network problems by enhancing or even replacing traditional branch routers with practical appliances, corporate data centers, and increasingly on cloud platform.
Software-Defined WAN Market By Component spans Virtual appliance, Physical appliance, Hybrid. SD-WANs are similar to hybrid WANs. Hybrid WAN is sometimes also used interchangeably, but they are not same or identical. The hybrid WAN consists of different types of connection types, and may have a software defined network (SDN) component.
Software-Defined WAN Market By Deployment Type spans On-premises, On-Cloud.
Software-Defined WAN Market By Service spans Managed Services, Professional Services. The Software-defined WAN market is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period of 2014-2025. The enterprises are focusing on improving products and solutions the managed services segment is expected to witness a substantial growth rate during the forecast period.
As managed services provide a combination of SDN-WAN (Software defined network-Wireless area network) to end-users, the overall cost of the operations gets reduced, thereby rendering flexibility.
Software-Defined WAN Market By Vertical spans Banking, Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI), Retail, Healthcare, Government, IT & Telecom, Manufacturing, and Other (Oil & Gas Mining & Transportation). Also the SD-WAN market is witnessing potential growth in the manufacturing industry across various regions, owing to the increase in the adoption of SD-WAN application. The BFSI and IT & Telecom sectors have been early adopters of SD-WAN technologies to serve their customer better.
The enterprises from manufacturing, BSFI, and IT & Telecom sectors are improving their operational efficiency and trying to reduce their operational cost. Software-Defined WAN Market By Geographical Region spans North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa (MEA), Asia Pacific, Latin America. North America is expected to hold the largest market share in 2016, while Asia Pacific would be the fastest maturing one, in terms of CAGR; Since Asia Pacific is the fastest growing region and represents with immense opportunities of growth.
Companies are investing in Asia Pacific’s need for a reliable enterprise grade network, high performance of mission-critical cloud application of SD-WAN solutions in the Asia Pacific region. The Key Players include Cisco Systems Inc, Citrix Systems, Inc, Aryaka Networks, Inc, CloudGenix, Inc, Ecessa Corporation, Silver Peak Systems, Inc, VeloColoud Viptela, Inc, Elfiq Networks, Inc, Peplink, and Versa Networks.
