About Software-Defined Networking (SDN)

SDN is an evolving network architecture in which the network control and the forwarding plane are decoupled and can be programmed directly. This transfer of control from specific network devices to manageable computing devices simplifies the management of network infrastructure in an enterprise environment. SDN provides control to enterprise business operations through a single logical point, simplifying network design and operation. In addition, this architecture streamlines operational functions of network infrastructure through instructions from SDN controllers.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global software-defined networking market to grow at a CAGR of 34.64% during the period 2016-2020.
