Report Overview

Software-defined networking (SDN) is an approach to computer networking that allows network administrators to manage network services through abstraction of lower level functionality.  However, it is much more to telecom as SDN has the potential to transform the carriers by improving the ability of network operators to provide applications, services, feature/functionality and bandwidth in an on- demand basis.    Furthermore, SDN it can help virtualize carrier networks and connect the subscriber base with functions, mobility, content, analytics, security, flow-control, optimization, etc.

This research evaluates SDN technology, companies, solutions, and market outlook.  It also provides insights into SDN in carrier networks and the prospects and advantages of deployment models uniquely suited to their needs and anticipated business models.
