SDN is finally a reality. With companies such as Google deploying its own SDN network that interconnects all its data centres, and operators such as NTT and Verizon pushing forward with implementing SDN soon, the market has picked up significantly in the last year. At the same time, the industry players have become committed to SDN with shipping and announced products. With the stakeholders coming together for silicon, hardware and software solutions for SDN, the market is buzzing with several discussions and announcements for emerging technology. With companies touting newer and improved networks for not only Telcos and data centres, but extending it to campus and wide area networks (WANs), it becomes a question of time when SDN becomes common place across networks. Although implementing OpenFlow solutions will hit a few roadblocks in terms of mismatch between hardware capabilities and modern switch silicon, it doesn't mean that deployment will be impossible, rather not easy. SDN promises a big array of optimization techniques and newer algorithms for managing traffic. Over the next five years, SDN will penetrate further into Telco and data center networks and will find its place into enterprises.
The global SDN market is estimated to grow from $198 million in 2012 to $2.10 billion in 2017. This represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 60.43% from 2012 to 2017. In the current scenario telecommunication continues to be largest adaptor for SDN. In terms of geographies, North America continues to be the biggest market for SDN solutions. However, over the next five years, Asia-Pacific (APAC) will experience increased market traction, to become the biggest SDN market globally.
