SDN STARTS TO GEL
What’s expected of software-defined networking in 2014? More implementations by end users, more work on standardizing SDN APIs, more deployments of leading vendors’ products, more vendor customization, more industry consolidation and more killer applications. All of this activity will help drive the SDN market beyond $3 billion in the next two or three years, according to research from IDC and Infonetics Research. IDC believes it will reach $3.7 billion by 2016, while Infonetics is a little more conservative, with a forecast of $3.1 billion by 2017.
