Market Dynamics

Driver: Investments of CSPs in SDN technology to automate network infrastructure

The exponential increase in the size and complexity of network infrastructures in the past decade has created a need for solutions to simplify and efficiently manage the entire network. SDN solutions cater directly to these problems by providing more flexibility in terms of traffic management to the operator for improving the efficiency of the network. Hence, the majority of Communication Service Providers (CSPs) around the globe are investing in the SDN technology for end-to-end network and service management and control.

The simplification and automation of network management lead to enhanced service provisioning. CSPs are preparing their networks to maximize the benefits of utilizing a virtualized network architecture, which includes, but is not limited, to increasing agility, flexibility, visibility, and cost-efficiency. CSPs are compelled to invest in SDN technology for reducing the total CAPEX and OPEX spend and to stay competitive in the data-driven digital economy, which is increasingly dominated by Over-the-Top (OTT) players.

Restraint: SDN controller to be the ideal attack surface providing a hacker with the total control of network

SDN technology is focusing on virtualizing every aspect of the network infrastructure, which leads to an increase in attack footprint. SDN can control various network devices, which is established through a single centralized control point. This provides the operator with the ability to influence the entire network through a centralized controller if hacked. It can also offer the hacker with the ability to influence the entire network with the centralized controller, without the need for hacking individual network devices. With the use of a centralized controller, a hacker can dynamically change the behavior of the network, which can affect the node to a node basis.

Though SDN software and service providers claim that with the use of proper protocols, SDN can increase the security of networks; however, several users of SDN are still concerned about the security of the network. This is because a potential reconfiguration of the network can occur while implementing the solution as an application, which is installed on the controller. Attackers can trick network engineers into installing applications that have been compromised and could make the network do something completely unexpected.

Opportunity: Growing adoption of IoT

In recent years, the number of IoT devices has increased exponentially. Nowadays, there are billions of IoT devices around the world. The widespread use of IoT technology creates the need for networking these devices. The network infrastructure is required to accommodate all these devices’ needs for providing adequate connectivity and ensuring the delivery of application-based services. Owing to this, infrastructure sharing among service providers has risen to reduce high investment costs related to infrastructure deployment. New architectures, such as SDN, are being adopted by enterprises for network sharing, handling big data from IoT devices, and simplifying management tasks. For this, multiple service providers are using common network infrastructures requiring isolation of network resources and strict confidentiality, which can be provided through SDN solutions.

Challenge: Difficulties in transitioning from traditional network to SDN

Efficiently transforming the existing technology and traditional infrastructure is a major task for all stakeholders in the software-defined networking market. This, in turn, would deliver a major blow for the existing traditional technology vendors even though there are several such vendors who have started partnering with various SDN solution providers. Every technology faces the brunt of a hype cycle during its nascent stages. While some technologies emerge faster than others, some remain in the pit a bit longer. Owing to technological roadblocks, such as backward compatibility with the existing infrastructure, gaining enterprise traction may pose a challenge initially. Even though there is a compelling technological rationale to adopt SDN technologies, resistance from the networking fraternity may be intricate and stiff to overcome. It is critical to thriving in this virtual environment.
