This IDC study addresses the SDN market and its associated ecosystem. As SDN start-ups and established market incumbents bring new technologies forward, customers will have greater choice not only in the products they purchase but also in how they design and build their networks to support their applications.

"Cloud computing and the 3rd Platform have driven the need for SDN, which will represent a market worth nearly $12.5 billion in 2020. Not surprisingly, the value of SDN will accrue increasingly to network virtualization software and to SDN applications, including virtualized network and security services. Large enterprises are now realizing the value of SDN in the datacenter, but ultimately, they will also recognize its applicability across the WAN to branch offices and to the campus network." - Rohit Mehra, vice president, Network Infrastructure, IDC.
