REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – June 15, 2017 – A brand new report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, finds the nascent Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) market is expected to grow at a compounded annual growth rate of 33 percent over the next five years with sales to enterprises accounting for the majority of revenue. SD-WAN comprises a set of networking and software technologies that promise to help enterprises adapt their WANs to the new world of Cloud services.

“The SD-WAN market is dividing into use cases for enterprise self-managed deployments and for telecommunication service provider managed business services,” said Shin Umeda, Vice President at Dell’Oro Group. “Over the next five years, we expect the majority of SD-WAN deployments to come from enterprises, despite the recent explosion in managed services announcements coming from telecom service providers.”

Dell’Oro Group’s Advanced Research: SD-WAN Report forecast is based on a bottoms-up methodology and includes details of the hardware and software components required for full SD-WAN implementation separated into enterprise and telecom market segments.

This new advanced research report addresses questions market participants have been asking such as:

  • What technologies are SD-WAN devices replacing?
  • What are the long-term financial implications for service providers as SD-WAN displaces their traditional revenue sources?
  • How fast are enterprises adopting SD-WAN?
  • Which traditional equipment vendors are dipping their toe into the SD-WAN pool?
  • How big is the SD-WAN market and what will be the catalysts and inhibitors to growth over the next five years?
