IHS forecast 2015 SDN market reached $ 1.4 billion
IHS latest report SDN hardware and software used in data centers and enterprise networks display, SDN technology spending in these areas is almost double in 2014, is expected to more than 1.4 billion US dollars. IHS said the data center and enterprise networks using SDN soft define the network technology continued sustained strong growth.
We saw in the first half of this year accounted for 45% of global naked switch in-use SDN Ethernet switches. White box switch vendor revenue accounted for the largest share of revenue bare machine switches. Dell to obtain a 100% share of bare machine switches, while HP has SDN (in-use and not-in-use) Ethernet switch port the largest share (and do not). Virtual switch ports accounted for SDN (in-use and not-in-use) port shipments of 11%.
"The new SDN use cases continue to emerge, although SD-WAN market is still small, but more emerging and traditional WAN optimization application providers and network providers have already jumped into the market." IHS data center, cloud and SDN terms PhD, research director CliffGrossner representation.
"By the end of 2016, along with the pilot phase from the laboratory to commercial deployment development, data center and enterprise LAN SDN market will be further solidified. To 2017, SDN shift from early adopters to mainstream buyers hands." Grossner representation.
IHS predicts that the proportion of SDN in-use physical Ethernet switches in the Ethernet switch market is expected to rise from the current 4% to 15% in 2017.
