Posted on: Oct-2017 | By: 9 Dimen | Telecommunications and Wireless

In this ever-changing world of technology, there is a quick addition of things that are getting associated on a daily basis through the private or public network. Conventional networking frameworks are slow to respond to the requirement produced by connected objects in a specific network. This is where the software-defined networking (SDN) plays an important role.

SDN parts the control layer of a specific network from the layer of application and infrastructure so that a network operator can effortlessly direct the flow of data via a centralized console, exclusive of touching routers and switches. It enables the network operators and engineer to respond immediately to shifting business demands. A conventional network usually utilizes unique appliance such as load balancer and firewall, rather the SDN uses a software application that uses the controller to handle data plane.

Growth is anticipated to be impelled by the rising alertness about SDN and the rising demand for more efficient and agile networking infrastructure that can be managed and monitored centrally. Furthermore, the intensifying competition among the telecom service providers—obligating them to offer uninterrupted services to keep hold of their consumers—together with the government programs such as “Digital India” are expected to contribute to the growth of software-defined networking market in India in the coming period.

Moreover, the rising implementation of SDN by large enterprises, telecom service providers, and data centers along with the growing requirement for cloud-based services is anticipated to drive the growth of the market. Apart from this, the market growth is also contributed to the rapidly developing regions in terms of implementing the software-defined networking solutions on account of the huge existence of the IT companies and their commercial offices in the area.

It is likely that the telecom service providers will be the rapidly growing end-user segment of the market. The rising smartphone and Internet penetration along with the increasing competition owing to the emergence of low-price and competitive services is fueling telecom service providers to provide uninterrupted and seamless services, which is resulting in the rising implementation of SDN solutions by the telecom service companies. This, in turn, is positively influencing the market growth.
