According to Gartner Group, by the end of 2019, 30% of enterprises will have deployed SD-WAN technology in their branches, up from less than 1% today. That is a drastic increase of 30X. This is the first big change in data networking in over a decade, since the widespread adoption of MPLS-VPN’s.

It’s no doubt that everything in data networking is changing and that Software Defined has long since changed the Data Center. It’s only logical that next to change is your wide area network.

Gartner goes on to predict that SD-WAN will be a highly fragmented industry with complex market dynamics, directions and vendor landscapes to take into consideration. Just some of the players in SD-WAN include Cisco, Citrix, CloudGenix, FatPipe, Nuage, Ocedo, SilverPeak, Talari, VeloCloud, Versa, Viptela, Infovista, Riverbed, and Sonus.
