Leaders Set To Capitalize On $12.5 Billion Opportunity

Vendors are fighting for market share in the fast-growing software-defined networking (SDN) space as the market is set to top $12.5 billion by 2020, according to recent reports from market research firm IDC.

"SDN in the data center and enterprise LAN is going to go mainstream in late 2016, early 2017," said Cliff Grossner, research director for data center, cloud and SDN at Englewood, Colo.-based IHS, in an interview with CRN. "We're seeing significant customer deployment. Cisco's got over 1,000 deployed customers for their SDN solution. VMware is around the same number, even though revenue might be higher on the VMware side. NEC has over 250 scaled deployment customers."

Grossner broke down the top 10 vendors in the market based on a number of segments -- including Ethernet switch, Ethernet switch silicon, Ethernet switch operating system and SDN control. In making its selection, IHS also examined vendors' approaches and overall activities in the SDN market to gauge the 10 companies most likely to win share as the market matures.
