Enterprise Mobility and Bring your Own Device Enhance Technology

The Asia-Pacific WAN optimization market registered modest growth in 2012. The market experienced a sluggish start, which left many vendors questioning the future of the WAN optimization controller market. With the prevalence of the Internet and Internet-based applications, the traditional WAN design was transformed, with the Internet often considered the new WAN. These changes prompted many key WAN optimizationn controller vendors to extend their portfolios or incorporate complementary capabilities into the platform. WAN optimization, therefore, is crucial for the success of business applications to deliver proper application capabilities across multiple locations or topologies.

Executive Summary

•The Asia-Pacific (APAC) wide area network (WAN) optimization controller market registered a modest year-over-year (YOY) growth of X% in 2012. The market had a sluggish start in 2012, which left many vendors questioning the future of the WAN optimization controller market.
•With the prevalence of the Internet and Internet-based applications, the traditional WAN design was transformed, with the Internet often considered the new WAN. These changes prompted many key WAN optimization controller (WOC) vendors to extend their portfolios or incorporate complementary capabilities into the platform.
•WAN optimization, therefore, is crucial for the success of business applications to deliver proper application capabilities across multiple locations or topologies. For instance, with the enterprise mobility and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trends in APAC, many WOC vendors introduced or enhanced the Internet or mobile acceleration functionalities in addition to their solutions.
•The service provider vertical continued to lead in spending in the APAC WAN optimization controller market in 2012, accounting for a total share of X%. With more service providers offering managed WOC services on top of traditional services, WOC spending responsibility is expected to fall on service providers.
•The WAN optimization controller market is transforming from hardware-heavy appliances to cloud services, with managed WOC services and cloud-based WOC services rising in popularity.
•The APAC WAN optimization controller market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of X%, reaching a total revenue of $Xbillion in 2019. Moving forward, the strong association between the WOC solution and its ability to enable cloud infrastructure or cloud-based applications such as Microsoft Office 365 may ensure a stable demand for the WOC technology among APAC enterprises.

Market Definitions

WAN Optimization Controller (WOC)
WAN traffic management controllers are appliances or software that enhance WAN performance by classifying, monitoring, and shaping WAN traffic.
WAN acceleration controllers are symmetric appliances or software that are deployed in datacenters and branch offices to enhance application and WAN performance. The controllers use techniques such as traffic shaping, compression, caching, and protocol acceleration to enhance performance. The WOC technology can be deployed at datacenters, branch offices, and end points.

For the purpose of this study, the WAN optimization controller market is segmented as follows:
WAN Optimization Controller:
•WAN Traffic Management
•WAN Acceleration
- Datacenter
- Branch Office
- End Point

For the purpose of this study, the WOC vertical and horizontal segments are defined as follows:
Customer Segmentation:
•Enterprise Horizontals
- Large businesses (Large)—more thanX employees
- Small- and medium-size businesses (SMB)—fewer than X employees
•Enterprise Verticals
- Banking, financial service, and insurance (BFSI)
- Manufacturing
- Government
- Education
- Service Provider (SP)
- Tech/Internet
- Others, include pharmaceutical, retail, logistics, oil and gas, energy, mining, agriculture, IT/ITes, and business processing outsourcing (BPO)

Assumptions

•All revenue is based on end-user prices, which is actual price paid by the end user for the products. All revenue associated with system integration, maintenance, and other professional services attributes have been excluded from this analysis.
•Revenue is in US dollars, unless specified otherwise.
•The average channel markup is assumed to be between X% andX%.
•The research excludes WAN optimization products that focus exclusively on non-enterprise verticals such as telecom-focused products.
•Appliances that offer limited functionality by offering these as non-core features on routers or other platforms are excluded from the study.
•Stand-alone WAN link load balancers are excluded from this study. Only symmetric appliance deployments are considered in the WAN acceleration segment’s revenue.
