The global software defined networking (SDN) market size is projected to grow from USD 13.7 billion in 2020 to USD 32.7 billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 19.0% between 2021 and 2028. Software defined networking or SDN offers a recently developed, advanced, swift solution to day?to?day networking problems in an organisation. Additionally, it also allows the enterprise to use software and hardware from numerous sellers to have customized networking services as per the needs of the organisation. Primarily, it is software that utilizes software base controllers or application programming interface to communicate information to hardware infrastructure and direct traffic on a network. SDN is unlike existing software, as traditional software uses hardware devices such as routers and switches to manage network traffic whereas SDN creates an online network to control hardware. This model provides a new and improved way of controlling the routing of data packets with the help of a centralized server.


Software Defined Networking (SDN) Market key takeaways

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities:
