INTRODUCTION

Software-defined networking (SDN), a network defined by software, is the latest approach in a series of programmable network developments after network virtualization (NV) and network function virtualization (NFV). All three approaches to networking aim to reduce the amount of time required to deploy the network while reducing the costs of networking infrastructure. In addition, the resulting network can be more easily scaled and provide flexibility for deployments in the cloud, data center or for fixed and mobile broadband services.

To be an SDN, the network must use software to:

Define management and administration of incoming and outgoing traffic.
Sets rules for traffic forwarding, event notification and statistical reporting.
Allow access and the manipulation of the forwarding plane.
Define patterns of application development and usage.
Work as an agent between communication protocols and infrastructure at southbound interfaces and applications using northbound application program interfaces (APIs).
Possess flexibility to accommodate a variety of diversified applications.
Provide consistent APIs to the client.

SCOPE OF REPORT

This report includes the study of 100 globally distributed companies offering SDN solutions. Through these 100 companies, BCC Research has been able to establish a market definition for SDN, SDN solutions offered, market segments covered and future growth of SDN. The report includes marketing strategies, product positioning strategies, merger and acquisition strategies, and use cases for SDN as well as projections for SDN through 2020.

This report covers commercial aspects of SDN rather than technical ones. Although the report provides information on the evolution of SDN and its architecture and components, the key focus is on its applications and markets.

The report covers the period from 2015 to 2020, with historical data from 2014. The report covers SDN adoption in major global regions such as North America; Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA); Asia-Pacific (APAC); and the Caribbean and Latin America (CALA). The report focuses on SDN vendors of controllers, SDN-enabled
switches, and other hardware and applications. It discusses communities developing open source protocols and products that will help in enabling SDN. The report also details business sectors and service provider businesses such as Internet service providers (ISPs), carrier network providers, cloud computing services providers and
data center service providers.
