Sd Wan Outline

By: R. Scott Raynovich

Futuriom has released its 2019 SD-WAN Growth Outlook, for the third year in a row. It appears that the flexible, software-based approach of software-defined wide-area-networking (SD-WAN) market is resonating with both enterprise and service provider users alike. It's gaining market traction and growth is accelerating. 

Futuriom now expects $2.2 billion in SD-WAN platform and tools revenue by 2020, $2.75B in 2021, and $2.5B by 2022. Incumbent networking vendors, startups, and service providers are all poised to benefit from this growth, and they are excited about moving toward a more nimble software delivery model and annual recurring revenue (ARR) business model upon which most SD-WAN services are built. 

End users are excited about SD-WAN because it enables them to manage and add network functionality using a cloud-based software model. Networking features such as WAN optimization, de-duplication, load-balancing, and link balancing can be bundled with broadband for business applications. All of this has the potential to lower both operating costs (opex) and capital expense (capex) of managing enterprise WAN connections. 

To build our research on SD-WAN, Futuriom surveyed more than 300 end users and interviewed dozens of enterprise and service provider buyers over a period of four months. Our conclusions are clear: This market is growing fast, and it's driven by organic demand.
