Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) Market Technology Advances and Insights

The industry growth is driven by the extensive adoption of SD-WAN solutions, which will unburden the organization with an expensive legacy infrastructure maintenance. The traditional WAN infrastructure relied on expensive hardware appliances to provide connectivity to remote locations. By deploying SD-WAN solutions, organizations can reduce those expenses.

Another factor accelerating software-defined wide area network market growth is the increased adoption of cloud-based platforms. The solutions help enterprises to connect remote users and devices directly to the cloud and ensure that the connections are secured. These solutions enable them to reduce the network complexities of managing dynamic workload and provide improved network visibility.

Furthermore, the penetration of smart IoT devices in various business verticals, including healthcare, manufacturing, telecom, and retail has increased the network complexities and security risks. SD-WAN solutions help to address the complexities of the IoT infrastructure and also improve the network visibility for managing connected devices to reduce security risks. The penetration of AI-enabled SD-WAN solutions will also contribute toward software-defined wide area network market growth. Machine learning algorithms are widely used for WAN optimization, enabling network administrators to analyze the WAN traffic and automatically reroute the traffic for the selected connection.
