Description

The Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) market has evolved from the early adopter stage to the early growth stage of the product lifecycle.

Frost & Sullivan’s previous survey, in 2016, provided insights into the SD-WAN market as it was navigating through the early adopter stage. In the last two years, enterprise decision makers have equipped themselves with a much better understanding of the benefits that SD-WAN brings to enterprise WANs. SD-WAN vendors and managed SD-WAN providers alike report witnessing a surge in sales and actual deployments. The Frost & Sullivan 2018 SD-WAN survey validates market trends, and captures insights into future adoption trends.

In this report, we provide a detailed analysis of the 2018 SD-WAN survey results that focus on enterprises’ current and planned adoption strategies for SD-WAN; perceived enterprise benefits of SD-WAN; and the criteria that network/IT decision-makers use while evaluating an SD-WAN vendor.
