Global SD-WAN Markets, 2020-2025: Financial Services, Communications, and many other Industry Verticals Benefit from SD-WAN Market Solutions

Dublin, Dec. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "SD-WAN Market by Components, Appliances, Services, Deployment, Segments and Verticals 2020 - 2025" report has been added to's offering.

SDN in support of Wide Area Networking (WAN), also known as SD-WAN is rapidly achieving mainstream adoption as both network operators and enterprises take a software-centric approach to more optimally manage WAN operations and provide efficient access to cloud applications. Part of the reason for its popularity is the technology enables solutions that provide a more open hardware architecture configuration. This facilitates greater flexibility overall as well as ease of migration from proprietary boxes and multiprotocol label switching services, which is a dominant industry trend as networks increasingly utilize virtualized infrastructure and non-proprietary equipment.

Many consider SD-WAN part of the evolution of SDN as applied to existing networking technologies such as Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), which directs data from one node to the next based on short path labels rather than long network addresses. SD-WAN was often applied as an overlay to existing network technologies such as MPLS virtual private networks and the Internet as a whole. SD-WAN saw early favor with enterprise networks on a managed service basis but has also gained great support with communication service providers (CSP) as a means of unifying networks that are increasingly becoming software-controlled and virtualized.

While the initial industry driver for SD-WAN has been reducing bandwidth costs and overall operational expense reduction, there are other benefits as businesses increasingly rely upon the cloud-based services model. Enabling more efficient operations, SD-WAN also facilitates a more robust and survivable environment such as the ability to support alternate/redundant paths for routing broadband traffic, which is especially important for cloud-based service quality of service support. This is especially important in a multi-cloud environment in which there is a need for visibility and control for hybrid networks involving centralized cloud and edge computing equipment as well as a combination of public, private, and hybrid cloud infrastructure.

It is important to note that SD-WAN is not only for network operators as it has also become the go-to platform for deploying and managing new enterprise network services. In fact, leading communications service providers offer SD-WAN services to enterprise on a managed service basis. Carriers espouse this approach as less risky for the enterprise including the ability to ramp-up costs as their network needs dictate. The initial wave of enterprise SD-WAN spending was a result of direct purchase from SD-WAN networking vendors, which places an onus upon enterprise to manage their own networks to some degree.

Accordingly, the majority of enterprise organizations are considering SD-WAN with plans towards utilizing solutions in a managed service environment. However, there remains a large proportion of enterprises that still rely upon MPLS. Those remaining are considering strategies to wean their dependency including limiting MPLS only to areas with infrastructure limitations, throttling traffic to data centers that still use MPLS, and other tactics. Enterprise hold-outs acknowledge that MPLS provides its existing quality of service needs for their buildings, campus networks, and metro Ethernet services.
